CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia women's tennis team will open its 2011 spring schedule this weekend as it hosts the sixth annual UVa Winter Invitational Saturday-Monday at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar's Head Sports Club. The No. 24-ranked Cavaliers are joined in this year's event by No. 22 Arkansas, No. 40 Utah and No. 68 LSU.
