Jason Zimmermann (2004)
A 2004 doubles All-America selection, Jason Zimmermann turned in the best campaign of his career as a junior, culminating in All-America and All-ACC accolades.

Zimmermann turned in an 8-0 singles mark during the 2004 ACC campaign and went 8-0 in doubles during the 2002 league season. His eight ACC doubles victories as a freshman are tied for the most in a year in program history.
