Women's Tennis: Virginia downs William & Mary, 6-1

The Virginia women's tennis team closed out the nonconference schedule in style today, taking a 6-1 victory over William & Mary in Williamsburg. 

The Hoos opened the day by taking the doubles point, although Virginia suffered a surprising loss at #1 doubles. UVa's top doubles team of Emily Fraser and Hana Tomljanovic lost to the Tribe's top tandem (Hope Johnson/Anik Cepeda), 8-6. Fortunately, the #2 team of Lindsey Hardenbergh/Erin Vierra won 8-3 (over Marlen Mesgarzadeh/Katie Kargl), before Virginia's #3 doubles team (Maria Fuccillo and Rashmi Teltumbde) won a thriller, 9-7.

Once singles began, Virginia cruised:

In singles, the Cavaliers won five matches, all in straight sets. Emily Fraser (Rye, N.Y.) cruised to a 6-2, 6-1 win at the top spot over Hope Johnson. Hana Tomljanovic (Boca Raton, Fla.) defeated Nina Vulovich 7-5, 6-4 at the No. 3 spot. Vierra won 6-0, 6-1 at No. 4 over Mesgarzadeh and Fuccillo defeated Anik Cepada 6-4, 7-6 at No. 5. Caryssa Peretz (Cherry Hill, N.J.) added a 6-1, 6-2 win at No. 6 over Kargl.

Virginia, ranked #8 in the country, finishes the nonconference portion of the schedule with an 11-2 record. The Hoos don't have to wait long to begin ACC play; the Virginia women will host in-state rival Virginia Tech tomorrow at noon, at the Snyder Tennis Center. 

UPDATE: The match has been moved indoors to the Boar's Head Sports Club.
