Virginia’s No. 5 Women’s Tennis beat Princeton 4-0 and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Super Regional at the NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships Sunday afternoon at Boar’s Head Sports Club.
The Ivy League Champion Tigers gave the Cavaliers everything they could handle in the doubles game. UVA team Elaine Chervinsky and Natasha Subhash defeated Daria Frayman and Nathalie Rodilosso of Princeton 6-3. On Field 3, Sofia Munera and Amber O’Dell overcame Zoe Howard and Nehu Velagu with a 7-5 win and scored a point in doubles for Virginia. Munera and O’Dell’s win was critical as the first-field match between UVA’s Emma Navarro and Hibah Shaikh and Grace Joyce and Maie Sung of Princeton was tied at 5-5 when the game was called off.
In singles, No. 72 Elaine Chervinsky defeated 54th Victoria Hu 6-2, 6-2, and 44th Natasha Subhash defeated Neha Velaga 6-3, 6-3, leading the Cavaliers 3-0.
Just as she did in Saturday’s first-round match against Youngstown State, Hibah Shaikh won Virginia by beating Zoe Howard 6-4, 6-2.
Virginia, 22-5, is set to host 12th Oklahoma State winner in the Super Regional next Saturday at 1pm at Boar’s Head Sports Club. The winner will secure a trip to the finals from May 20-22 in Champaign, Illinois.
With both UVA men’s and women’s teams advancing to the Super Regionals, Virginia is the only school to have both teams hosting the round of 16 game.
