The doubles competition will be conducted May 20-25 at the USTA National Campus in Orlando, Florida. The University of Central Florida and the Greater Orlando Sports Commission will serve as hosts.
Automatic qualification into the Division I doubles championship was awarded to any conference with one or more eligible doubles teams ranked in the ITA Top 60 for eligible/entered doubles teams. For conferences with more than one doubles team within the ITA Top 60 eligible/entered doubles teams, the subcommittee applied the NCAA selection criteria to determine which doubles team is the automatic qualifier from those conferences. All doubles teams must have started a minimum of 10 doubles matches, with a minimum of four matches in the spring, in order to be selected as an automatic qualifier or an at-large selection.
Kijametovic and Musitelli earned Conference USA’s automatic bid, after being the highest ranked doubles duo in the league.
