Charlottesville, Va. — Carlos Kelaidis won a 10-point tiebreak in the third set to secure a victory over T-105 Jeffrey Von Der Schulenburg, 3-6, 6-4, 10-6. Despite that effort, the Clemson men’s tennis team (6-9, 1-6 ACC) dropped a hard fought match to No. 3 Virginia (13-2, 7-0 ACC) on Sunday, 5-2.
The doubles point was strongly contested, as the No. 1 pair of Ryuhei Azuma and Spencer Whitraker took a 6-5 lead just as the Cavaliers clinched the point on Court 2 6-4. In singles play, Jorge Plans Gonzalez won in convincing fashion at line five, 6-1, 6-3. However, Virginia stood strong to secure the win in the 70th all-time matchup between the two ACC foes.
The Tigers take the week off before returning to the Duckworth Family Tennis Facility on Monday, March 22 to take on Furman. First serve for that match is slated for 5 p.m.
