Duke Tops Wake Forest For Second ACC Win
Inclement weather moved play indoors to the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center. The Blue Devils struggled in doubles action but rallied with wins in four of the six singles victories to move to 6-2 at home. Duke is 9-5 overall and 2-2 in the ACC while Wake Forest drops to 12-6 on the year.
The strong surge in singles was powered by the middle of the lineup as Dylan Arnould and Jared Pinsky cruised to straight set wins. Arnould defeated Jon Wolff 6-2, 6-1 to improve to 14-11 on the year. Pinsky claimed a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Iain Atkinson. Pinsky is now 17-10 on the year and 2-2 in ACC play.
