#ACI at the #USOpen
Two former #UVAMTennis players have been invited to compete in the prestigious American Collegiate Invitational tournament at the 2017 US Open. Thai-Son Kwiatkowski, the defending champion of the event, and J.C. Aragone will be in the field comprised of eight. The American Collegiate Invitational, open only to American college players, began in 2014 as a way to spotlight college tennis during the US Open. The fields are comprised of the top two players in the ATP rankings as of Aug. 7 and the top five players in the year-end Intercollegiate Tennis Association singles rankings, excluding those selected by pro ranking. At least two graduating seniors or players who have turned pro or exhausted their collegiate eligibility are also among the players in the draw. The winners will receive a wild card into either the 2018 US Open main draw or qualifying tournament, depending on their ranking the next summer.
