KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced its preseason rankings, as well as the collegiate men's tennis players who will compete at the ITA All-American Tournament, and Western Michigan's Nadin Indre found himself as the top player in the Mid-American Conference in both respects. The senior from Satu Mare, Romania was ranked at #124 in the nation in singles and was named to the qualifying draw at the All-American Championships, which begins with qualifying matches on Sept. 28 at the University of Tulsa. Indre is the only player in the MAC to have either been ranked or named to the ITA All-American draw.

Indre was as close to a sure thing as there was for the Broncos during his first two seasons in Brown and Gold, taking over the No. 1 singles and double spots in 2012 and holding on to them with consistent excellence. As a junior in 2012-13, Indre went 20-7 in singles play, including a 19-6 mark in dual match play and a 15-6 record in No. 1 doubles that earned him a #18 ranking in the ITA Midwest region. Indre was similarly dominant in doubles play, going 21-9 overall and 16-7 in No. 1 doubles in dual matches. Indre and former teammate Ross VanderPloeg reached the semifinals of the ITA Midwest Regionals in doubles play, making them the Bronco pairing with the best finish in program history, and the pair was ranked fifth in the ITA Midwest region in the first poll of the dual match season.

Indre is a two-time First Team All-MAC performer, as well as a two-time Academic All-MAC honoree. The 2012 MAC Player of the Year and MAC Tournament Most Outstanding Player, Indre has compiled a 50-18 record in singles play and a 46-25 record in doubles play in just two years at WMU, giving him a career total of 97-44 (.689). He is 9-1 overall in MAC singles matches in two years, with his sole loss coming during the 2011-12 season.
