Minnesota men’s tennis junior Leandro Toledo will begin his run in the NCAA Division I Individual Singles Tournament against sixth-ranked Alex Domijan of Virginia at 8 a.m. CT Wednesday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia.

The match will be among the first in the 64-player draw. The winner of Toledo and Domijan’s match will play either Diego Galeano of Baylor or Mikelis Libietis of Tennessee.

All matches in the tournament will be the best-of-three sets. Regular scoring and a 12-point tiebreaker at six-games-all will be used for all matches.

Toledo, who is ranked No. 38 in the latest national singles rankings, has a 23-9 overall record in 2013-14 with an 18-6 mark—playing all 24 of Minnesota’s dual matches at the No. 1 position—in the spring. Toledo was one of four unanimous First Team All-Big Ten selections, going 8-3 in conference play with a 7-3 ledger against ranked opponents.

Dominjan of the NCAA semifinalist Cavaliers, is 25-1 on the season and enters the tournament on a 15-match winning streak.

The Hamburg, Germany native is the 26th Minnesota to qualify for the NCAA Singles Tournament. Current student assistant coach Rok Bonin became the first Gopher to make the cut since 2009 as a senior last season.

Bonin fell 6-1, 3-6, 7-5 to Auburn’s Andreas Mies in the first round of last year’s competition in Urbana, Ill.
