College Tennis Online

Wake Forest sophomore Romain Bogaerts plays his first match in the NCAA Singles Tournament.

Sophomore first singles player Romain Bogaerts begins his quest for an NCAA singles championship this morning against Illinois' Farris Gosea in Athens, Ga. The 29th-ranked Bogaerts anchored the Demon Deacons lineup with a 32-12 record, including an impressive victory over 2nd-ranked Guillermo Alcorta of Oklahoma.

Meanwhile, the junior Gosea is seeded 18th and enters the match with a 36-9 record. Additionally, Gosea has posted a strong 10-2 mark against ranked opponents.

The winner of the match will square off against the winner of 9-16 seed Brayden Schnur from North Carolina and Pepperdine's Alex Sarkissian. Bogaerts, who hails from Huppaye, Belguim, lost to Schnur in Chapel Hill two months ago 6-2, 6-4.

Bogaerts becomes the first Wake competitor in the singles tournament since 2010. The All-ACC First Teamer looks for revenge after being upset in the first round last season as the number six overall seed while playing for Mississippi State.
