Charlottesville, Va. – No. 23 Florida State (12-5, 4-2 ACC) lost 7-0 Sunday afternoon at the Boar’s Head Sports Club against top-ranked Virginia (14-2, 4-0 ACC). It was the Seminoles second match in nine days against the No. 1 team in the country after beating North Carolina last week in Tallahassee.
In doubles, the high-profile matchup of No. 26 Benjamin Lock and Marco Nunez of FSU and No. 6 Ryan Shane and Luca Corinteli remained unfinished and on serve when the Cavaliers clinched the doubles point. Lock and Nunez beat the Virginia pair in the ACC Tournament last season.
In singles, Virginia won all six of the first sets, including a 7-6 tiebreaker on Court 6 from Jake Albo. The Cavaliers would clinch five of the six matches in straight sets. Nunez forced a third set against No. 47 Collin Altamirano before falling 6-1, 3-6, 7-5.
The Seminoles return home for a Thursday night matchup against Georgia Tech that will stream live on ESPN3 as part of the USTA College MatchDay. The match begins at 5:00 pm.
