URBANA, Ill. - Virginia senior Jarmere Jenkins has a chance to capture two NCAA tennis titles today.
The third-seeded Jenkins beat Sebastian Fanselow of Pepperdine 7-6 (1), 7-6 (3) in an NCAA singles semifinal Sunday.
He will meet Blaz Rola of Ohio State in today's final.
The fourth-seeded team of Jenkins and Mac Styslinger beat second-seeded Henrique Cunha and Raphael Hemmeler of Duke 7-5, 6-3 in a doubles semifinal Sunday.
The UVa duo will meet Chris Camillone and David Holiner of Texas in today's final.
Jenkins helped UVa win the NCAA team title last week. He could become the first man in 12 years to win the NCAA tennis triple crown in the same year.
Today will be the first time in five years that a Cavalier will play for the singles crown. It will be the first time in three years that a UVa duo plays for the doubles title.

More Hokies advance to NCAA meet
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Four Virginia Tech athletes fared well enough at the NCAA East meet Saturday to earn berths in next month's NCAA national championships.
Earning bids were Denis Mahmic (hammer throw), Tomas Kruzliak (hammer throw), Grant Pollock (1,500) and Ronnie Black (high jump).
A total of 10 Hokies and four Cavaliers qualified during the three-day meet for the national championships.
No one from VMI or Radford qualified for the national championships. Radford's Vincent Wyatt (William Fleming) was 13th overall in the 110 hurdles, but only the top 12 advanced to the national meet. Wyatt missed out on a berth by four one-hundredths of a second. VMI's Andrey Dmitriev finished 23rd overall in the 1,500 on Saturday.
UVa's Kathleen Stevens (Blacksburg) was 31st overall in the 5,000 and did not earn a national berth.
