After an impressive 23 collegians filled the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Singles Draws at Wimbledon, players with college ties have once again flooded the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Doubles Draws at the All England Club as 64 players with ties to college tennis will be competing.
This total is up four from the 2023 French Open and nine from the 2023 Australian Open where collegians have already claimed two Men’s Doubles Championships (Austin Krajicek/French & Rinky Hijikata/Australian) and two Mixed Doubles Championships (Tim Puetz/French & Luisa Stefani/Australian).
Beginning with the Ladies’ Doubles Draw, there will be a total of 18 competing players who have gone through the American collegiate system. This includes four players that are seeded within the top ten seeds of the draw as Ellen Perez (4) (Georgia), Desirae Krawczyk (5) (Arizona State), Ena Shibahara (8) (UCLA), and Giuliana Olmos (10) (USC) will all look to continue their good stretch of play.
Two teams are set to feature an all-collegiate duo with Emma Navarro (Virginia) teaming up with Ingrid Neel (Florida) and Alexa Gurachi (Alabama) teaming up with fellow Crimson Tide standout Erin Routliffe (Alabama).
From the Gentlemen’s Doubles Draw, a grand total of 46 players of the 128 player field will have come from the American collegiate system. This is a staggering 36% of the field with many of these players making up the top teams within the draw.
French Open Men’s Doubles Champion, and current world No. 1, Austin Krajicek (Texas A&M), will be set to continue his run of dominance from the grass courts of Wimbledon as he teams up with Ivan Dodig as the No. 2 seeded team in the draw.
