All the qualifying rounds are in the books and main draw action is underway in Tulsa at the 2013 Saint Francis Health Systems ITA Men's All-American Championships.   Several freshmen are looking to make their mark on the season's first major with Texas's George Goldhoff, North Carolina's Ronnie Schneider, UCLA's Mackenzie McDonald, and Tulsa's Daniel Santos all in action today.  In my opinion the one playing the best tennis right now is UCLA's Marcos Giron with some great recent results on the Futures Tour so if I had to pick a champion I'd go with him.
