OXFORD, Miss. -- Every tennis player growing up dreams of playing on a big stage. Four members of the Ole Miss women's tennis team will get the chance to play where some of the greatest tennis players in the history of the game have played when they compete in the inaugural Oracle ITA National Fall Championships this week 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 well-represented at the fall championships with senior Arianne Hartono competing in singles and in doubles with sophomore Alexa Bortles. Senior Natalie Suk and freshman Sabina Machalova will also compete in doubles.

Path to final fall event...
Arianne Hartono won the singles title at the ITA Southern Regional Championships to earn an automatic bid, while Natalie Suk and Sabina Machalova earned the automatic bid in doubles by defeating teammates Hartono and Alexa Bortles in the regional championship match. Hartono and Bortles received an at-large bid as a result of their No. 6 national ranking and being a regional finalist.

At the net with head coach Mark Beyers...
"It's very exciting to have four players involved in the first National Fall Championships. It's a great chance for our girls to measure themselves against the very best in the country and finish the fall season on a high note."
