CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 3 seed Virginia-No. 6 seed Georgia Tech ACC Women's Tennis Championship quarterfinal match on Friday, April 25 has been moved indoors to UNC's Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center due to inclement weather. The match, which was originally slated for 3 p.m. at Cary Tennis Center, will begin no earlier than 6:30 p.m.
The Cavaliers, who begin the championship in the quarterfinals for the third consecutive season, are 17-30 all-time in ACC Championship dual matches. Virginia has advanced to the semifinals in each of the past two seasons and five times overall (1993, 2001, 2003, 2012 and 2013) since 1990 when the three-day, single-elimination format with no playback was established.
Virginia, which posted program bests in ACC wins (12) and consecutive wins (9) this season, is 20-12 all-time against Georgia Tech. The Cavaliers posted a 4-2 win against the Yellow Jackets earlier this season. The Cavaliers are 2-0 against Georgia Tech at the ACC Championship.
All-ACC performers Julia Elbaba (Oyster Bay, N.Y.), Danielle Collins (St. Petersburg, Fla.), Stephanie Nauta (Galveston, Texas) and Rachel Pierson (Princeton, N.J.) lead the Cavaliers into Friday's action. Elbaba is 16-3 at No. 1 singles and Collins is 15-5 at Nos. 1 and 2. Nauta is 18-2 at Nos. 2-4 and Pierson is 13-8 at Nos. 2-4.
Elbaba and Pierson are ranked No. 13 in doubles with an 8-8 dual record. The tandems of Nauta and Xi and Collins and Epstein have each posted 7-1 dual marks.
ACC championship action began today and continues through Sunday's 11 a.m. championship match.
