Three Earn ITA Regional Awards

TEMPE, Ariz. – The stretch of postseason honors continues for Stanford men's tennis, as the Intercollegiate Tennis Association revealed its regional awards on Monday. Max Basing was named the ITA Northwest Region Rookie of the Year, while Alexandre Rotsaert claimed the ITA Senior Player of the Year for the region as well. Assistant coach Brandon Coupe was named the ITA Northwest Assistant Coach of the Year.

Basing burst onto the scene as one of the top first-year players in the country, finishing his freshman campaign with a 23-4 overall singles record, including a team-leading 18-2 mark in dual play, and a 15-11 mark in doubles. Basing was 9-3 against ranked opponents in singles and was ranked as high as No. 34 this season in singles and No. 31 in doubles.

Rotsaert wrapped up a highly-productive career this season, finishing 12-8 in singles and 33-11 in doubles. The senior reached the ITA Fall National Championship doubles match with Arthur Fery in November and reached the round of 16 at the NCAA doubles championship this spring. Rotsaert was ranked as high as sixth in doubles and No. 38 in singles this season.

Coupe and head coach Paul Goldstein led Stanford to another strong campaign this season, as Stanford went 19-6 on the season with a 6-2 mark in Pac-12 play. The Cardinal reached the super regional round in the NCAA Tournament. Coupe earns his fourth regional honor, as he was also the ITA Northwest Region Coach of the Year in 2018, 2014 and 2010, while he has a chance to repeat as the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year after earning the award in 2018.

Basing, Rotsaert and Coupe are eligible for national awards in their categories, which will be announced on Monday, June 13.
