WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's tennis team wraps the 2017 regular season with a pair of matches, with a battle at local foe Georgetown on Thursday before a Senior Day match against Fordham on Saturday at the GW Tennis Center on the Mount Vernon Campus.

Georgetown (7-11) has won three of its last four, most recently falling to Emory last Thursday.
Fordham (11-6) takes a three-match win streak into the weekend, last downing Siena on Saturday.
Tverijonas and fellow senior Fernando Sala will be honored prior to first serve of Saturday's match.
