Charlottesville, Va. – Competing in their second ACC match of the year, the Uva men’s tennis team dropped a 6-1 decision to No. 22 Wake Forest on Saturday afternoon. The Cavaliers are now 8-4 on the season.

Despite the loss, the Cavaliers got a strong effort from Jason Romesburg at No. 2 singles, and Michael Duquette and Stephen Nolen at No. 1 doubles. Romesburg knocked off David Bere at No. 2 singles, 7-6 (6), 6-7, 6-3. Duquette and Nolen knocked off the No. 43 ranked doubles team in the nation, in David Loewenthal and Trent Brendon, by a score of 8-4.

“That’s a huge win for us at No. 1 doubles. I’m really proud of those guys,” head coach Brian Boland said. “I can’t say enough about Jason Romesburg. He competed mostly at No. 6 singles last year, and here he is this year beating one of the nation’s best at No. 2 singles, for the No. 22 team in the country, and leading the team in victories. He’s the epitome of what I expect of a tennis player, and the epitome of what a tennis program is all about.”

Romesburg improved to a team-best 15-8 with his victory over Bere. The Cavaliers return to action tomorrow at 1 p.m., as they host No. 14 Duke.
