MILWAUKEE, Wisc. – Harvard’s Henry Von Der Schulenburg is headed to the 2021 ITA National Fall Championships, as the sophomore claimed the men’s singles title at the 45th annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic.
Von Der Schulenburg topped USC’s Lodewijk Weststrate 6-3, 6-2 in the singles final. Von Der Schulenburg nearly completed a sweep of the men’s titles at the MTC, as he and Harris Walker reached the men’s doubles final.
Pepperdine’s Daniel De Jonge and Linus Carlsson Halldin turned away the Crimson duo 6-2 to claim the championship. The Waves dropped just six games over the course of their three matches en route to the title. De Jonge also reached the semifinals in the singles draw.
An ITA Gold Level Event, the Milwaukee Tennis Classic men’s and women’s singles champions receive wildcard entries into the 2021 ITA National Fall Championships. That event will take place November 4-7 at the Barnes Tennis Center in San Diego, California.
The MTC women’s singles champion is still to be determined, although we do know the participant will be from the University of North Carolina.
Teammates Fiona Crawley and Reilly Tran claimed the women’s doubles title, and were set to face off against one another for the women’s singles championship. However, that match will be played back on the Chapel Hill campus as both Crawley and Tran felt ill following doubles and the singles match was ultimately postponed.
Crawley and Tran scored a 6-3 victory over Miami of Ohio’s Brindtha Ramasmy and Laura Rico in the women’s doubles final.
The Milwaukee Tennis Classic featured players from 16 Division I men’s programs, while 14 women’s programs were represented.
