Eh apples and oranges

Tennis teams can't train together, so they have to be quite separate even if the CEO is also the men's coach. (I honestly don't love the look of the women's program reporting to the men's coach). Coordination may yield benefits, but it isn't as straightforward as in swimming.

Men's and women's tennis are very different sports. Swimming is much more similar across sex. Swim teams often train co-ed, and coaches don't get pigeonholed as men's vs women's like they do in tennis. It's efficient to have combined, but it's not the only way, and there are great teams that go either way (Cal/Texas run separate programs, tons of examples of combined, to varying degrees).

I think UVA's current facilities might not allow for two autonomous swim programs. You would also probably see a substantial budget increase to pay two staffs
