GREENSBORO, N.C. - Miami senior Daniel Vallverdu has been named ACC Men's Tennis Player of the Week after impressive wins in the Hurricanes' most recent conference outings.
The 15th-ranked Vallverdu won a pair of singles matches in straight sets over a pair of ranked opponents on the road last week to push the Hurricanes into second place in the ACC standings at 7-2.
Vallverdu, who has won five straight ACC matches over ranked opponents, defeated NC State's No. 36 Jay Weinacker 6-4, 6-2 and Wake Forest's No. 21 Cory Parr 6-1, 6-4 in the top flight. With 86 career singles wins, the four-time All-American now ranks fourth in career wins in Miami history.
The Valencia, Venezuela, native also picked up a doubles victory with David Rosenfeld at the No. 1 position on Friday, with an 8-4 victory over NC State's Christian Welte and Julian Sullivan.
