They started the year ranked way too low, but looking like contenders already (from No. 22 up to 7). Lots of young talent like you said. UNC tomorrow!

Virginia def. TCU 4-3

The TCU Horned Frogs started their quarterfinal match against the Virginia Cavaliers hot. All three doubles teams went up 4-2 early. The Cavaliers started to come back, but TCU’s Gray/Fomba and Jong/Paroulek slammed the door both winning their match 6-3. In singles, the teams split the first sets. Virginia freshman Rodesch methodically worked through his match against Paroulek. He got the Cavaliers on the board after only dropping one game to his opponent. Four of the singles matches went to a third set. After dropping his second set to Montes De La Torre, Fomba roared back in the third to put the Frogs up 3-1. From there on out, it was all Virginia. Soderlund finished next for the Cavaliers with Ross following closely behind. Newcomer Von Der Schulenburg sealed the victory for the Cavaliers, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4. The Cavaliers advance to the semifinals tomorrow and will play against No. 2 North Carolina at noon CT.

It’s coming down to the wire… 2 - 2… looks like it will be 2 - 3 soon… but UVa is slightly leading the last few matches.

We put up a great fight… but lost in the end. Go Hoos!

I live close to the new tennis courts, and my younger daughter reported back that they just beat Duke yesterday (I don’t know if Duke’s team is any good). Good weekend!
