GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – The field for the 2015 ACC Men’s Tennis Championship is set, as Virginia and Wake Forest will square off for the title at 10 a.m. at Cary Tennis Park.
Virginia will be in search of the program’s ninth consecutive title and 11th in the last 12 seasons. A victory in the finals would give the Cavaliers 11 titles in program history, all under the guidance of head coach Brian Boland. Wake Forest is looking to earn its first ever men’s tennis crown.

The Demon Deacons earned their spot in the title by posting a 4-0 sweep of Georgia Tech.
