Pecotic to Open ITA Main Draw Singles Thursday in Tulsa
The ITA All-America main singles draw is out, and Princeton senior Matija Pecotic will face Minnesota's Rok Bonin in the Round of 64 at the ITA All-America Championship in Tulsa, Okla., Thursday at 11 a.m. ET.
Pecotic, the two-time Ivy League Player of the Year, is the only Ivy Leaguer in the main draw.
Bonin will be well seasoned after playing three matches in three days Monday through Wednesday to gain a berth in the main draw. Bonin won all three matches in straight sets, never giving up more than three games in any set. He was the No. 25 seed in the 128-player qualifying draw, from which 16 players gained berths in the main draw. Pecotic is one of the 48 main-draw players who gained a direct berth, bypassing the prequalifying and qualifying draws.
The winner of the Pecotic-Bonin matchup will face the winner between 12th-seeded Finn Tearney of Pepperdine and Guillermo Alcorta of Oklahoma at 4:30 p.m. ET Wednesday.
