TULSA, Okla. - The Duke men’s tennis team will send seven representatives to the 2012 ITA Men’s All-American Championships, Sept. 29-Oct. 7 at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center and Cascia Hall in Tulsa, Okla.

“We are looking forward to getting things going in Tulsa,” said head coach Ramsey Smith. “All-Americans is a unique event because it has multiple qualifying draws that give players the opportunity to work their way into the main draw of one of the most prestigious college events of the year.  Over 350 of the top college players in the country will be there competing for the title.”

Freshmen Daniel McCall and Josh Levine will compete in the pre-qualifying stage of the singles draw. In the first round of action, Levine will take on Joakim Norstrom of Saint Mary’s College of California Saturday at 10 a.m. ET. McCall will receive a bye in the first round and play TCU’s Facundo Lugones in the second round Saturday at noon.  

Sophomores Raphael Hemmeler and Jason Tahir will be competing in the qualifying stage along with freshman Michael Redlicki. The qualifying stage will be played Oct. 1-3.

Senior Henrique Cunha, ranked No. 1 in the ITA’s preseason rankings, and junior Chris Mengel received automatic bids to the main draw, which will be held Oct. 4-7.

Duke is looking to continue its impressive play after sweeping singles and doubles play at the Fab Four Invitational to start the year.

The Blue Devils will also be represented by three doubles teams in Tulsa. The duo of Cunha and Hemmeler, the 16th-ranked tandem in the preseason ITA rankings, will receive an automatic bid to the main draw. The doubles main draw will take place Oct. 4-7.

In the qualifying stages, the Blue Devils will be represented by two teams, including the tandem of Tahir and Redlicki. Levine and McCall will also be teamed together in doubles qualifying. The doubles qualifying stages will take place on Oct. 2-3.
