THE FLATS – Georgia Tech men’s tennis resumes its fall slate with the ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., from Sept. 29-Oct. 8.
The ITA All-American Championship is one of the largest national tournaments in collegiate tennis. Individuals will compete in the pre-qualifying draw to enter the qualifying draw. Those who get through the qualifying draw advance to the main draw for a chance at the All-American national title.
Qualifying singles and doubles will be held Oct. 1-2, with main draw matches taking place between Oct. 4-8. A player from the ACC has won the singles championship in each of the past eight years. William Blumberg of North Carolina won the 2017 event.
Players will also be competing to secure a berth into the 2018 Oracle ITA National Fall Championships, which takes place Nov. 7-11, in Surprise, Ariz.
Four Yellow Jackets will make an appearance for Tech at the tournament, Phillip Gresk, Andrew Li, Brandon Freestone and Cole Gromley.
Last year, Carlos Divar made it to the singles main draw where he defeated Arkansas’ Jose Salazar, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3. In the second round, Divar fell to Oregon’s Thomas Laurent. Also representing Tech last season was duo Chris Yun and Divar who advanced to the qualifying draw, but dropped the match to the Memphis pair Kai Lemke and Matt Story.
