What does "dual singles" mean in college tennis?
I keep on seeing it on all the athletic sites.

Not sure--but nice to see another Verdasco fan out there!

numerous schools play "team" tournaments in the Fall but they do not play the singles and doubles in the same day so it does not constitute a match. Dual singles could be similar except the teams only play the 6 lines of singles and play 2 matches a day against various schools. Maybe some of the actual coaches that read might be able to elaborate.

Dual Match format is simply a format wherein the entire team participates against another entire team. It's a way of allowing for teams scores in otherwise individual sports.
The term is also used in wrestling and other sports.

You are probably seeing someone's "dual singles" record, meaning their singles record in dual matches.
When one college plays a dual (i.e. two-team) match against another college, the #1 singles players from each college go against each other, likewise for the #2 from each college, on down to #6 from each college. Before the singles (at least in NCAA Division I), the top 3 doubles teams from each college play each other.
