Q U O T E S
Michigan Head Coach Bruce Berque
On the victory over Wake Forest ... "We won the doubles point and it looked like we were in pretty good control winning five of six first sets. But the tables turned pretty quickly on us. I think the biggest thing that stood out is that our guys showed a lot of composure again and they really stepped up and did well at the end of the match."
On Barrett Franks clinching the match ... "It was kind of similar to what he did against TCU. When I stepped on his court I saw nothing but high-level tennis, great composure, and a really good competitive presence on the court. I thought he was playing aggressive tennis, but still controlled, and he really took it to his opponent. I thought he handled the pressure great again."
U-M Junior Barrett Franks

On the victory over Wake Forest ... "They are a very good team. It is always a good win against these guys because they are a very competitive and always make us compete."
