Teams Playing (men): Miami Hurricanes at No. 40 Virginia Tech Hokies
Joao Monteiro and five other Hokies seniors will be honored pre-match during Virginia Tech’s Senior Day. Head coach Jim Thompson has been one of PlaySight’s strongest partners and advocates for the past few seasons, and we’re excited to be bringing this ACC matchup to the world through HD live streaming on all courts.
It has been a disappointing season for the Hurricanes, but they are coming off of a very strong home performance over Louisville.
From the official Miami tennis website:
Miami (8-12; 3-7 ACC) enters the weekend with a recent 5-2 win against Louisville at home. The Canes won five singles matches to earn the victory. UM still has one ranked singles player with No. 37 Piotr Lomacki, and doubles pair Bernard Tefel and Max Andrews are ranked No. 72.
No. 40 Virginia Tech owns a spring record of 14-7, and are 6-5 for league play. The Canes hold an all-time record of 8-9 against the Hokies. Most recently the Hokies fell to No. 31 Georgia Tech 6-1 on Sunday in Atlanta.
Virginia Tech sees four singles players on the ITA/Oracle list: No. 25 Joao Monteiro, No. 65 Andreas Bjerrehus, No. 80 Edoardo Tessaro, and No. 108 Amerigo Contini. The Hokies hold one doubles pair with No. 12 Andreas Bjerrehus/Joao Monteiro.
