CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 10 Virginia men's tennis team returns home this weekend for three matches, including two top-10 showdowns. The Cavaliers host No. 8 Baylor on Saturday at noon, No. 6 Notre Dame Sunday at noon and Liberty Sunday at 6 p.m.
The Baylor match will be played either outdoors at the Snyder Tennis Center or indoors at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar's Head Sports Club, depending on weather. Check VirginiaSports.com or follow @UVaMensTennis on Twitter for the latest information on the location of the match. The Notre Dame match is scheduled to be played outdoors at the Snyder Tennis Center and the Liberty match will be played indoors at the Boyd Tinsley Courts.
The Cavaliers (6-1, 1-0 ACC) return to action for the first time in two weeks after a semifinal appearance at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in Houston. Virginia topped Notre Dame, 4-2, and California, 4-0, before falling to eventual champion Ohio State, 4-3, in the semifinals.
Baylor (8-2) reached the quarterfinals of ITA National Team Indoors, defeating Texas A&M before falling to USC. The Bears, whose lineup features three of the top 20 players in the nation, is coming off a 4-0 win over Ole Miss last week. The Cavaliers won last year's meeting in Waco, 6-1, but the teams haven't met in Charlottesville since 2010.
Notre Dame (10-3, 0-0 ACC) makes its ACC debut Friday when it hosts Virginia Tech before traveling to Charlottesville. The Fighting Irish lost to the Cavaliers in the first round of ITA National Team Indoors, but rebounded to down Mississippi State and Florida in the backdraw. Last week they blanked Ball State, 4-0, after a 4-2 loss to top-ranked Ohio State. Prior to this year's match at National Team Indoors, the teams hadn't met since 2011.
Liberty (4-4) enters the week after a 5-1 victory over Morgan State last weekend. The Cavaliers have won all five previous meetings, including a 7-0 win in the last meeting of the series in 2010.
Admission to all home Virginia tennis matches is free.
