It's been a busy day for Wahoo Nation, as the ACC has released a number of All-ACC teams today, and six ACC championships take place this weekend. For the 26th ranked Virginia women's tennis team, it was just another day in the office, as the 6th seeded Cavaliers blanked 11th seeded Boston College 4-0 in the opening round of the ACC Tournament.
"The key in any match, but in particular during tournament play, is trying to do as much as you can of the things you do well, and to control what you can control," said head coach Mark Guilbeau. "I thought we did a good job of that today. Clearly Boston College has improved this season, but I think we have as well. It was a very good match for us to play. The fact that the singles was more competitive that it has been in the past helps us for tomorrow. We have a match under our belts now. I liked how the doubles was very decisive for us. That is what it needs to be and that is where we start tomorrow."
All-ACC Lindsey Hardenbergh won both of her matches today, 6-2, 6-1 over Alex Kelleher in singles and, with her partner Erin Vierra, 8-2 in doubles over Katharine Attwell and Brittany Delaney.
Virginia will look on to rematch 3rd-seeded Clemson Friday at 3:00 p.m. They've got a long road ahead of them before they can make it to the title match.
