Men's Tennis Downs Duke

Virginia men's tennis, ranked #1 in the country, returned to Charlottesville for the first time in a month and a half and delivered a resounding 6-1 victory over ACC rival Duke. With the win over #10 Duke, Virginia extended their conference win streak to 69 straight, an ACC record. It was Duke's first conference loss of the year.

"I was pleased with our overall performance today," said head coach Brian Boland. "Duke is a great team and gave a great effort and we knew we were going to have to rise to that challenge today. We need to keep working hard and continue to improve as we have another tough match Sunday against North Carolina.

Full match results below the fold. As noted by Coach Boland, Virginia returns to action on Sunday against #17 UNC. Virginia and North Carolina are the only remaining undefeated teams in the ACC.
