Texas rallies from 2-0 hole to defeat No. 13 Wake Forest for second time this season

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Junior All-American Søren Hess-Olesen clinched a 4-3 comeback victory for Texas against Wake Forest on Thursday at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex.

No. 29 Hess-Olesen defeated No. 20 Romain Bogaerts in three sets (6-4, 3-6, 6-3) at the No. 1 singles position to give UT its fourth point of the match after falling behind 2-0.

"Søren was very aggressive today," head coach Michael Center said. "I was really pleased with the way he was attacking the ball and attacking the net. When it really counted, he played with a lot of aggressiveness and confidence."

UT lost the doubles point to open the dual match, but Adrien Berkowicz and George Goldhoff served as a sliver lining. The pair won their third consecutive match as a team by cruising to an 8-0 victory at the No. 3 position.

Texas then fell behind 2-0 as No. 57 George Goldhoff lost to Wake Forest's No. 56 Maksim Kan in straight sets at No. 3 singles.

The next four singles matches to finish would be in the Longhorns' favor. Sophomore Nick Naumann, junior Adrien Berkowicz and junior Clement Homs won consecutive singles matches to set up Hess-Olesen's match-clinching victory.

The seventh-ranked Longhorns (14-3) have won five matches against top-25 opponents this season. Texas also defeated Wake Forest (9-4) on Jan. 26 at the ITA Kick-Off.
