WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Wake Forest head men's tennis coach Tony Bresky announced the 2016-17 schedule on Tuesday afternoon, featuring 11 fall events and at least 24 more in the spring.

The spring slate features 23 duals, including against 15 teams that finished 2015-16 nationally ranked and four of the top 10, as well as 11 teams which qualified for the NCAA Tournament.

"We are very excited to announce our 2016-2017 schedule," Bresky, the reigning ACC Coach of the year, said. "The fall will provide some great opportunities for our players to compete with some of the best players in college tennis. The spring non-conference schedule will be very challenging and should really prepare us well for ACC play. As always, we expect the conference schedule to be very strong and will be a fun challenge."

The fall includes five collegiate events: the Duke Invitational (Sept. 16-18), the ITA All-American Championships (Oct. 1-10), ITA Carolina Regionals (Oct. 14-18), USTA/ITA National Indoor Championships (Nov. 3-6) and the Wake Forest Invitational (Nov. 11-13). Individuals will also have chances to compete at challengers throughout the fall.

Fourteen of the 23 spring matches will be played at home, including each of the first seven. That stretch includes a spring-opening doubleheader against NCAA qualifiers North Florida and East Tennessee State on Jan. 14. The Deacs then host an ITA Kickoff Weekend pod for the second-straight year, playing Nebraska in the opening round, with the winner playing either Georgia State or Auburn.

 

 

Other ranked teams to come to Winston-Salem include Oklahoma State (Feb. 3), North Carolina (March 10) for the ACC-opener, Virginia Tech (March 21), Virginia (March 31) and Florida State (April 14).

Wake Forest is taking road trips to three top-20 programs: Texas (March 4), TCU (March 6) and Georgia (March 16), also traveling to ranked ACC foes Duke (March 12), Georgia Tech (March 26), NC State (April 19) and Notre Dame (April 23).

The ACC Championship is set for April 26-30 in Cary, North Carolina.

The Demon Deacons are coming off the most successful season in program history, claiming the team's first-ever ACC Tournament title. They finished a program-best 31-6 and set a team record with 10 ACC wins. Wake Forest returns a trio of All-Americans in Skander Mansouri, Petros Chrysochos and Christian Seraphim.
