ATHENS, Ga. - The University of Virginia men's tennis team avenged a regular season loss today by defeating Wake Forest 4-2 in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Coast Conference men's tennis tournament at the Bill Moore Tennis Center on the Georgia Tech campus.

John Winter got Virginia on the board by winning at 5 over Lars Kabiersch, but Wake Forest's Jimmy Chou added to the Deacs' score with a win over Tommy Croker at 6.
