April 29, 2008
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Wake Forest men's tennis team will face Auburn in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament in Athens, Ga. on Saturday at 10 a.m.

The Deacons (17-10) are 3-4 all-time against the Tigers (10-12), but haven't faced the Southeastern Conference opponent since 1987.
No. 4 seed Georgia, the event host, will face Radford in the opening round. The winners of the first matchups will then battle each other on May 11 for a spot in the Sweet 16, set for May 16 in Tulsa, Okla.
