ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Big Ten teams are filling trophy cases just a few weeks into the 2023-24 men's tennis season.

Fall tennis focuses on player development as schools send singles and doubles players to tournaments, hidden duals and Challenger events.

Michigan State claimed a pair of titles last weekend with Ozan Baris taking the singles title at the Battle in the Bay in San Francisco — a final that also featured teammate Ronald Hohmann III. The two players previously teamed to capture the main draw doubles championship at the Gamecock Ranked +1 tournament on Sept. 17.

MSU's other trophy came at the at the 47th Annual Milwaukee Tennis Classic where Max Sheldon and Sebastien Collard joined forces to win the doubles crown. Nebraska's Calvin Mueller and Leo Lopez Linquet won three matches to make it an All-Big Ten doubles final at the MTC.

It was a Big Ten sweep in Milwaukee as Kenta Miyoshi of Illinois beat out a field of 32 to secure the single championship at the ITA Gold Level event.

In Columbus, Ohio State's Robert Cash and former Buckeye James Trotter took home the doubles hardware at the ATP Columbus Challenger.

This weekend finds eight Big Ten schools traveling to Tulsa for the ITA All-American Championships, slated for Sept. 30-Oct. 8 at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center.
