For the third year in a row, the Liberty men's tennis team travels down to Winston-Salem, N.C. to take part in the Wake Forest Fall Invitational at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex. The tournament begins Friday morning and will conclude Sunday.

The Flames have enjoyed success at the Wake Forest Fall Invitational in the past, particularly last season with two Liberty duos notching three wins each in the doubles flights. Jorge Azuero and former teammate Shea Thomas reached their respective doubles flight finals, losing to No. 45 North Carolina's Esben Hess Olsen and Brett Clark, 8-6.

Egon Samaii highlighted singles play for the Flames in the 2013 Wake Forest Fall Invitational, capturing third place in the C2 Flight with a win over UNCG's Jimmy Roueche in straight sets.

This year's Wake Forest Fall Invitational will feature several regional powerhouses including Duke, North Carolina, Louisville and host Wake Forest.
