Once the regionals were completed earlier this month, most of the 32 places in the USTA/ITA Indoor Intercollegiate Championships were spoken for, with just the wild cards and at-large entries to be named.
The names of those players were released today by the ITA, with the exception of host school Columbia's men's wild cards in singles and doubles.
The 2 ITA men's wild cards:
Henrique Cunha, Duke
Sebastian Fanselow, Pepperdine
The 1 USTA men's wild card:
Jarmere Jenkins, Virginia
There are nine at-large players, due to Peter Kobelt and Matija Pecotic, who reached the quarterfinals at the All-Americans, also winning their regionals, and Emilio Gomez, another All-American quarterfinalist, withdrawing. All nine reached the final of their regionals, as required by the selection criteria.
The at-large men:
Romain Bogaerts, Mississippi State
John Lamble, Santa Clara
Julian Lenz, Baylor
Mikelis Libietis, Tennessee
Dennis Mkrtchian, UCLA
Cameron Silverman, Elon
Vlad Stefan, Michigan
Leandro Toledo, Minnesota
Victor Valente, Georgia State
In the doubles, the two at-large berths went to Costin Paval/Dane Webb of Oklahoma and Moritz Buerchner/Norbert Nemcsek of North Florida. The one USTA wild card was given to Virginia's Alex Domijan/Harrison Richmond.
The women have slightly different criteria.
The 1 ITA women's wild card:
Gina Suarez-Malaguti, North Carolina
The 2 USTA women's wild cards:
Danielle Collins, Florida
Katie Le, Santa Clara
The 1 host school wild card:
Nicole Bartnik, Columbia
Six of the at-large positions go to regional finalists:
Brynn Boren, Tennessee
Zoe DeBruycker, North Carolina
Sofie Oyen, Florida
Caroline Rohde-Moe, Ole Miss
Sabrina Santamaria, Southern Cal
Anett Schutting, Cal
Four at-large positions went to players who reached at least the quarterfinals of the All-American or their Regional:
Natalie Beazant, Rice
Maho Kowase, Georgia
Zsofi Susanyi, Cal
Abigail Tere-Apisah, Georgia State
Although there are only two at-large berths in the women's doubles, there ended up being three teams who received entry that way, because All-American finalists Hanna Mar and Beatrice Capra are not playing. Mar won the regionals with Ester Goldfeld and so she will be in the draw. The three at-large teams, who must have reached their regional semifinals, are Robin Anderson/Pamela Montez of UCLA, Gabriella DeSimone/Zoe Scandalis of Southern Cal and Stephanie Nauta/Li Xi of Virginia.
The USTA wild card went to Ashley Dai/Whitney Kay of North Carolina and the host wild card to Bianca Sanon/Tiana Takenaga of Columbia.
For the complete list of participants for the tournament, which begins next Thursday in New York, see the ITA website.
And a tip of the hat to the ITA and USTA staff, who have managed to keep all the information flowing despite the major inconveniences caused by Sandy.
