The men looked invincible and the women looked strong, as both Virginia squads advance to the Round of 16 in the 2012 NCAA Tennis Championships this weekend. The men blanked Fairleigh Dickinson in the first round and did the same against No. 32 VCU in the second, while the women shut out Fairleigh Dickinson in the first round and took down No. 23 Tennessee 4-1 in the second round.

Makes you feel kind of bad for Fairleigh DIckinson, right?

The women will take on No. 3 Duke on Thursday in Athens, Ga. at 4:00 p.m. Eastern. Duke took both of the previous games this season, with a 4-3 win in the regular season and a 4-0 shutout in the ACC Tournament. If the Cavaliers are able to pull off the upset, they will have set a school record for most wins in a season (21) and will have advanced further than any other Cavalier squad ever has.

The men will also head down to Athens, Ga., and they will take on 14th-seeded Cal, who struggled with a 4-3 victory over Texas Tech this weekend. The match will take place at 4:00 p.m. Eastern on Friday, and will be the first time these two schools have ever met.
