Numerous Cavalier players spent the summer preparing for next season by playing a wide variety of events. They saw success in Pro Circuit tournaments, regional tournaments and ITA Summer Circuit events.
"It was another great summer in and around our UVa Women's Tennis program," said head coach Mark Guilbeau. "The entire team put in a lot of good practicing and training during their time here in Charlottesville, as well as while at home. Chili certainly topped our summer efforts off with a great amount of competition on the USTA Pro Circuit. She played at an extremely high level throughout and deserved the success she had. We are excited about all of the work the team put in to prepare for another great season. Coach Porco and I were happy to be very busy with our players on the court throughout. As always, Troy did a great job assisting me in working directly with the players on a daily basis. On top of the great tennis in Charlottesville, I was very fortunate to spend two weeks coaching at the WTA level a events in Sweden and Austria during July. It all adds up to a strong summer with valuable progress and learning. It will be a great year ahead!"
