Tchoutakian Set For Oracle ITA Masters

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor men’s tennis senior Max Tchoutakian will begin his run at the 2016 Oracle/ITA Masters Thursday in Malibu, Calif.

The second-annual Oracle ITA Masters will be played Oct. 13-16 with Pepperdine University hosting the first rounds of competition at Ralphs-Strauss Tennis Center and the semifinals and championship matches at the Malibu Racquet Club.

In singles play, Tchoutakian, ranked No. 54, will play No. 110 Adam Moundir of Old Dominion at 4 p.m. CT Thursday. The winner of that match will meet the winner of No. 9 Arthur Rinderkneck (Texas A&M) and Alex Chepik (Bethune-Cookman) in the round of 16 on Friday.

Tchoutakian is 4-3 in singles action on the season and 3-1 against ranked opponents, after going 2-1 at the Saint Francis Health System ITA Men's All-American Championships.

Meanwhile in doubles, Tchoutakian will partner with Baylor women’s tennis senior Blair Shankle in the 32-duo mixed doubles draw. The BU twosome will open play at 10 a.m. CT Thursday against Lidia Yanes Garcia and Andrew Watson of Austin Peay and Memphis, respectively.

If the two Bears win their opening match, they will play again later Thursday at 6 p.m. vs. the winner of Ashley Lahey (Pepperdine)/Ryotaro Bushamuka (Kentucky) and Lucile Pothier (Abilene Christian)/Michael Feucht (Lamar).

Shankle and Tchoutakian both received one of Oracle's wildcard berths into the tournament.

The 2016 event features a format change from the inaugural event as one woman and one man from each Division I Conference to the championships will compete in both their respective singles as well as a mixed doubles competition.
