By ODU Athletics

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Adam Moundir (Luzern, Switzerland) of the Old Dominion men's tennis team received a bid to the 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championships on Wednesday night. Moundir becomes the first ODU male tennis player to receive a bid to the NCAA Tournament since 2009, when Alex Seleznev accomplished the feat.

The NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Subcommittee selected the 64 singles players that will compete in the 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Tennis Championships. The singles competition will be conducted May 24-29 at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia, after the conclusion of the team championship, which runs from May 18-23. The University of Georgia will serve as host.

All matches shall be the best-of-three sets. No-ad scoring and a 7-point tiebreaker at six-games-all will be used for all matches. Automatic qualification into the Division I singles championships is awarded to any conference with one or more eligible singles players ranked in the ITA Top 125 for eligible/entered singles players. For conferences with more than one singles player within the ITA Top 125 eligible/entered singles players, the subcommittee applies the NCAA selection criteria to determine which student-athlete is the automatic qualifier from those conferences. All singles players must have a minimum of 13 completed singles matches, with six matches in the spring, in order to be selected as an automatic qualifier or an at-large selection.

Moundir, who was just named the C-USA Player of the Year for the second consectuive season this morning, is currently ranked No. 50 in the ITA singles rankings and enjoyed a season high ranking of No. 18. He posted a 17-4 dual match record, with all of the matches coming at the No. 1 position. Moundir went undefeated (6-0) in conference play in singles and undefeated (5-0) in doubles, including 6-4, 6-1 singles and 6-2 doubles wins in the C-USA Championship match.

In April, Moundir was one of just six student-athletes to be named to the 2017 InTouch Credit Union C-USA Men's Tennis All-Academic Team.
