Gonzalez and Kelaidis Prevail While Tigers Fall to No. 3 Virginia

Box Score

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.
