Baylor men's tennis ready for NCAA singles & doubles championships

Baylor men’s tennis juniors Johannes Schretter and Will Little will open play in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championship Wednesday and Thursday at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex in Winston-Salem, N.C.

In the singles opening round, 63rd-ranked Schretter will play Wake Forest’s No. 38 Skander Mansouri at 4 p.m. CT Wednesday afternoon. In doubles, Schretter will team up with Little as the 15th-ranked doubles duo in the country and face Wake Forest’s 35th-ranked duo of Petros Chrysochos and Bar Botzer on Thursday with the time still to be determined.

Schretter’s selection marks the 17th-consecutive year that the Bears have had at least one competitor in the NCAA singles draw.

In singles, Schretter has compiled a 24-13 overall record and was 13-7 in dual-match play. The Graz, Austria native has won six matches against ranked opponents this season.

No. 15 Schretter and Little are 13-10 this season and 8-8 at the No. 1 spot. They boast a 5-4 record against ranked opponents in 2018 with the biggest coming against then-No. 7 Victor Pham and Jackie Tang of Columbia in the Bears’ matchup against then-No. 14 Columbia at the ITA National Team Indoor Championships on Feb. 17. The duo was ranked as high as No. 2 this season.

All matches will be the best-of-three sets. No-ad scoring and a 7-point tiebreaker at six-games-all will be used for all matches. In doubles, a 10-point match tiebreaker will be played in lieu of a third set.
