GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Duke’s Beatrice Capra and NC State’s Robbie Mudge have been named this week’s Atlantic Coast Conference Tennis Players of the Week.

In helping Duke capture the 2014 ITA Indoor Team Championship, Capra faced some of the nation’s toughest competition, as she compiled a singles record of 3-1. Capra’s three singles wins came against the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 15 competitors in the country. In addition to excelling in singles play, Capra also performed well in doubles, teaming with Hanna Mar throughout the weekend to amass a doubles ledger of 2-1, with the lone loss coming at the hands of the No. 1 doubles pair in the country. Capra’s victory over UCLA’s Robin Anderson, the highest ranked singles player in the country, tied the championship match at 3-3 before Mar clinched the championship for the Blue Devils.

NC State’s Mudge enjoyed a solid weekend in which he went unbeaten in singles and doubles and helped the Wolfpack to victories over two ranked foes. Against No. 30 VCU on Friday, Mudge and his doubles partner Ian Dempster clinched the doubles point for NC State with an 8-7 (4) victory from the No. 1 position. The pair would pick up two more victories against No. 26 South Carolina (8-2) and Longwood (8-3). On Friday, Mudge helped NC State earn a 4-3 win with a singles victory over VCU’s Michal Voscek, 6-4, 6-1, before clinching the team win for the Wolfpack against the Gamecocks on Sunday with a thrilling 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (1) victory over No. 103 Kyle Koch from the No. 2 singles position.
