FLUSHING, N.Y. -- Wake Forest continued play at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships on Saturday, with the doubles pairing of Christian Seraphim and Skander Mansouri advancing into the finals.

The duo picked up its third-straight win, including its second in three sets. Against the pairing of Jathan Malik and Kevin Wong from Michigan, Seraphim and Mansouri bounced back after dropping the first set to win, 3-6, 7-5, 1-0 (10-4).

In the final, the Wake Forest duo will take on Valparaiso's No. 55 ranked combination of Jeffrey Schorsch and Charlie Emhardt. Wake Forest looks to pick up its second title in as many national championship events, as Petros Chrysochos won the singles title at the ITA All-American Championships.
