Auburn Men's Tennis senior Marko Krickovic made a solid run at the ITA Men's All-American Tournament in Tulsa, Oklahoma, making upsets and winning in singles for five consecutive days.
Krickovic advanced in singles play Tuesday during the qualifying round, defeating Filip Kraljevic of Ole Miss in a third-set tiebreaker 6-2, 2-6, 7-6 (5). He advanced out of the qualifying round Wednesday in another three-set win over Luca Corinteli of Virginia.
The senior posted another three-set come-from-behind victory over Mitchell Pritchard of Tulsa, 3-6, 6-2, 6-1. Krickovic moved on to upset the top seeded player in a three-set win Friday, victorious over Notre Dame's Quentin Monaghan. Krickovic dropped the first set 1-6 before taking the second 7-5 and finishing off Monaghan 7-5 in the third.
Krickovic's run came to an end Saturday, his sixth day of competition, falling to seeded Tom Fawcett of Standford in the round of 16. Fawcett defeated Krickovic by a 6-4, 6-0 score.
The Tigers will return to action Thursday in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for the USTA/ITA Regionals Oct. 15-19.
