A trio of Princeton tennis players were included in announcements made Friday afternoon by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
Junior Lindsay Graff and sophomore Amanda Muliawan were both included on the preseason women's singles rankings and were announced as participants in the Riviera/ITA Women's All-America. Muliawan is ranked 107th and Graff is 120th on the top-125 singles list, while Graff is in the main singles draw at the All-America and Muliawan is in the prequalifying singles bracket. The pair will also play in the qualifying doubles draw.
On the men's side, junior Zack McCourt was named as a participant in the qualifying singles draw. Both the men's and women's events will return to their familiar locales, with the men's event in Tulsa, Okla., and the women's tournament in Los Angeles. Both will begin with prequalifying play Sept. 28 and 29 and continue with qualifying play Sept. 30 through Oct. 2. Main-draw play will take place Oct. 3-6.
Last year, Katherine Flanigan and Graff played in the prequalifying doubles draw, and Graff played in qualifying singles draw. Matija Pecotic '13 made a historic run on the men's side, becoming the first Princetonian to advance to the event's semifinals since 1982.
