Four Bruins to Compete in Inaugural American Collegiate Invitational
By: UCLA Athletics
FLUSHING, N.Y. – The American Collegiate Invitational, the inaugural college competition at the US Open, begins Thursday, September 4, with NCAA champions Marcos Giron (UCLA) and Danielle Collins (University of Virginia) among the top American men and women competing for possible main draw wild cards into the 2015 US Open.

The winners of the American Collegiate Invitational will receive main draw wild card entries into the 2015 US Open, if the men’s champion is ranked No. 250 or better and the women’s champion No. 150 or better. Otherwise, the winners will receive 2015 US Open qualifying wild cards. The champions will also get wild cards into two USTA Pro Circuit events, while each runner-up will get one.

“College tennis plays such a significant role in the vitality of American tennis, and it’s important that we are able to highlight some of America’s best college players on a worldwide stage at the US Open,” said USTA Chairman, CEO and President Dave Haggerty.

“We are excited to make college tennis a bigger part of the US Open,” said US Open Tournament Director David Brewer. “Many collegians continue on to successful pro careers, so we look forward to showcasing some very talented players.”
