Virginia women’s tennis sophomore Natasha Subhash and freshman Emma Navarro have been selected to compete in both the 2021 NCAA Women’s Tennis Singles and Doubles Championships, being held May 23-28 at the USTA National Campus in Orlando after the conclusion of the team championship, which runs from May 17-22.

Senior Rosie Johanson (Vancouver, Canada) will partner with Navarro (Charleston, S.C.) in doubles and junior Sofia Munera (Pereira, Colombia) will play with Subhash (Fairfax, Va.) .

Navarro will be the No. 3 seed in the 64-player women’s singles draw with Subhash earning a 9-16 designation. Both of the doubles teams are unseeded in the 32-team championship.

Johanson previously earned invitations to both the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships in her sophomore season (2018). Munera earned a spot in the 2019 NCAA Doubles Championship as a freshman. This will be the first trip to the individual championships for Subhash as the tournaments were not held last season.

Automatic qualification into the Division I singles championship is awarded to any conference with one or more eligible singles players ranked in the ITA Top 125 for eligible/entered singles players. For conferences with more than one singles player within the ITA Top 125 eligible/entered singles players, the subcommittee applies the NCAA selection criteria to determine which student-athlete is the automatic qualifier from those conferences. All singles players must have results for a minimum of six matches in order to be selected as an automatic qualifier or an at-large selection.

Automatic qualification into the Division I doubles championship is awarded to any conference with one or more eligible doubles teams ranked in the ITA Top 60 for eligible/entered doubles teams. For conferences with more than one doubles team within the ITA Top 60 eligible/entered doubles teams, the subcommittee applies the NCAA selection criteria to determine which doubles team is the automatic qualifier from those conferences. All doubles teams must have completed a minimum of four matches in order to be selected as an automatic qualifier or an at-large selection.

Match-ups and the complete singles and doubles brackets will be announced the day before the start of the tournament.
