CHARLOTTESVILLE -- The No. 22 Virginia women's tennis team returns home this weekend to host a pair of Top 25 ACC foes. The Cavaliers host No. 25 Florida State on Friday at 3:30 p.m. and No. 5 Miami on Sunday at 11 a.m. Both matches are slated to be played outdoors at the Snyder Tennis Center (weather permitting).
