OXFORD, Miss. –
Some of the greatest tennis players in the world have graced the courts that members of the Ole Miss men’s tennis team will be playing on this week at the inaugural Oracle ITA National Fall Championships in Indian Wells, California.

About the ITA Fall Nats… 
The Oracle ITA National Fall Championships will feature a 64-player singles draw, while doubles consist of a 32-team draw. Matches will take place at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa and the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. Players qualified for the tournament through designated placings at earlier ITA National Championships and the ITA Regional Championships Presented by Oracle.

Schedule of events…
Play begins Wednesday with the first round of singles and doubles and concludes Sunday with the singles and doubles finals.

Who’s there…
The Rebels will be represented at the fall championships with sophomore Tim Sandkaulen competing in singles and senior Zvonimir Babic and junior Filip Kraljevic in the doubles draw.

Path to final fall event…
Zvonimir Babic and Filip Kraljevic won the ITA Southern Regional Championships to earn an automatic bid to the ITA Fall Championships. The duo (5-0) defeated the nation’s No. 7 ranked team from Mississippi State to secure their spot. Tim Sandkaulen earned an at-large bid after reaching the quarterfinals at the regional championships and comes into the final fall event with a 6-1 record.

Courtside with head coach Toby Hansson
“We are obviously very pleased to have Zvonimir, Filip and Tim represent our program at this new prestigious collegiate tournament. This is an event that they obviously had as a goal to get the opportunity to play but I know that they are not satisfied just to make it there. They are there to make a serious run at the title. I know the whole team will follow and cheer for the guys from Oxford as they compete out west.”
