CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 52 ranked Virginia women's tennis team was victorious in its home opener, downing Old Dominion 7-0 Saturday night at the Boar's Head Sports Club. The win improves the Cavaliers' record to 2-1 on the season.
Virginia took the lead early by taking the doubles point. After the Monarchs had won at No. 2 doubles, the Cavalier duo of Diana Srebrovic (Oakville, Ont.) and Douglas Wink (Greensboro, N.C.) won at No. 1 singles. With the doubles point in the balance, the Virginia team of Caroline Hammond (Williamsburg, Va.) and Lindsey Pereira (Arlington, Texas) won at No. 3 in a tiebreaker to clinch the point.
The Cavaliers extended the lead to 2-0 when Lori Stern (Ojai, Calif.) won at No. 4 singles by injury default. Srebrovic and Wink then cruised to straight set wins at No. 1 and No. 2 singles to clinch the match. Pereira and Marta Bechliwanis (Etobicoke, Ont.) added straight set wins at No. 6 and No. 5 singles to make the score 6-0 before Kristen James (Clifton, Va.) won at No. 3 in a superbreaker to complete the sweep.
The Cavaliers will return to action on Saturday, February 12 as they host No. 50 Penn at the Boar's Head Sports Club. The match is the second half of a tennis doubleheader with the Cavalier men's team taking on Indiana at 2:00 p.m. with the women's match against Penn to follow at 7:00 p.m.
