DURHAM, N.C. - Junior Henrique Cunha picked up his sixth Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Tennis Player of the Week honor of the season Tuesday, as announced by the conference office.

Cunha, ranked second in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's singles poll, posted a convincing 6-0, 6-0 victory over No. 89 Max Wennakoski of VCU from the top spot in the Blue Devils' lineup. The win improved Cunha to 9-0 in No. 1 singles play and 23-4 overall this season. The Jaú, Brazil, native also teamed with sophomore Fred Saba to defeat the Rams' Alexis Heugas and Antoine Baroz, 8-5, in the No. 1 doubles match. The Duke tandem, ranked 15th in the nation, moved to 9-2 overall and 6-2 in dual match play with the win.  

Cunha's performance helped the fifth-ranked Blue Devils edge No. 36 VCU by a 5-2 margin on the road in Richmond, marking their second victory over the Rams this season. Duke faced VCU earlier this spring during the ITA Kick-Off Weekend regional in Durham, claiming a 6-0 win.

The Blue Devils return to Durham this weekend to host No. 13 Pepperdine on Friday, March 9 at 1 p.m. and No. 11 California on Sunday, March 11 at 12 p.m.
