Co-Director Andres Pedroso

Pedroso served as Virginia's associate head coach from 2010-14. During that four-year span, the Cavaliers won four ACC championships, the program's first NCAA championship (2013) and two ITA National Team Indoor titles (2011 and 2013). Pedroso coached six All-Americans during this time, including 2013 ITA National Player of the Year Jarmere Jenkins, the 2013 NCAA Doubles Champion team of Jenkins and Mac Styslinger and ITA All-American champions Alex Domijan and Mitchell Frank. Pedroso was named the 2014 ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year and he was twice honored as the ITA Atlantic Region Assistant Coach of the Year (2012 and 2014).
As the director of tennis, Pedroso will be charged with oversight of both programs while serving as the head coach of the men's tennis program. Several top-ranked tennis programs have successfully implemented the Director of Tennis model. This model will enable the UVA men's and women's programs to collaborate and make the best use of all available resources while sharing a joint vision for success that meets the goals set by the Virginia athletics department.
As a student-athlete at Duke, Pedroso helped lead the Blue Devils to four ACC titles, he was a two-time All-American and he was named to the ACC 50th Anniversary Team. Over eight seasons, as a player at Duke and a coach at Virginia, Pedroso has not lost a team match against a conference opponent.
Following his college career at Duke, Pedroso played professionally for four years, reaching career-high rankings of No. 271 in singles and No. 255 in doubles. During his pro career, he won four singles titles and two doubles titles on the Futures Tour and a doubles title on the Challenger Tour.
Pedroso first came to Virginia after serving as a national coach for USTA Player Development. During his time with the USTA, he was responsible for the development of the top male American junior players born in 1995. He also worked periodically with several top American professional players, including Sam Querrey, Mardy Fish, Jesse Levine and Ryan Harrison.
