April 6, 2014
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.
GW returns to host crosstown foe Georgetown on Friday, April 11 for its home finale and Senior Day match at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus.
