WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.  - No. 53 George Washington men's tennis fell to No. 21 Wake Forest, 4-0, on Sunday afternoon at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex in its final contest of a three-match weekend. 

The Colonials (12-6) were edged in doubles action, then fell to the Demon Deacons (12-8) at the Nos. 1, 2 and 4 singles spots as they faced their highest ranked opponent of the season.

The No. 76 team of junior Francisco Dias and freshman Julius Tverijonas won its No. 1 doubles match in a tiebreaker, 8-7 (5) over Jon Ho and Pedro Dumont, but it was not enough to lift GW as the No. 2 duo of senior Nikita Fomin and sophomore Danil Zelenkov were edged in a tiebreaker by Romain Bogaerts and Maksim Kan, 7-8 (4), and the No. 3 tandem of seniors Viktor Svensson and Ulrik Thomsen fell to Adam Lee and Anthony Delcore, 5-8.

Fomin was then defeated by Bogaerts - the No. 32 singles player in the nation - in the top flight match, 3-6, 1-6, and Dias was defeated by No. 45 Lee, 3-6, 4-6. Wake Forest secured its fourth point at the No. 4 spot when Tverijonas fell to Ho by scores of 3-6, 4-6.

Zelenkov and No. 68 Kan had won one set apiece, 6-3, 2-6, in No. 3 action, Svensson nearly defeated Pedro Dumont, 6-4, 6-5, at the No. 5 spot and Thomsen was split with Nicky Kunz, 7-5, 2-6, at No. 6, but the three matches went unfinished.
