No.2 Virginia drops Clemson men's tennis 6-1

— Second-ranked Virginia defeated Clemson 6-1 in an Atlantic Coast Conference men’s tennis match Friday.

With the win, Virginia improves to 18-1 overall, and 8-0 in the ACC. The Tigers fall to 8-11 overall, and 4-4 league action.

“I’m proud of our effort today,” said Clemson coach Chuck McCuen. “They are ranked number two in the country for a reason. They are a very talented team and they are also very disciplined.”

At number one singles, Virginia’s armere Jenkins defeated the Tigers’ Yannick Maden 7-5, 6-2. Jenkins is ranked third nationally in singles. The number one ranked player in the nation, Mitchell Frank, won at number two singles over Clemson’s Gerardo Meza.

Clemson posted a win at number-six singles as Zachary Rigsby defeated Philippe Oudshoorn 6-0, 6-4.

“We will learn from this loss,” said McCuen. “We didn't execute on cue. However, we have showed improvement. We must prepare for tomorrow as Virginia Tech comes to town.”
