TEAM/SINGLES/DOUBLES

TEMPE, Ariz. –
A big week by teams in the state of Texas caused a bit of a shakeup in the national team rankings, as Oracle and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the updated Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Division I Men’s National Rankings on Tuesday.

Winners of the 2017 BNP Paribas Open Collegiate Tennis Challenge Presented by Oracle, Baylor vaulted into the Top 5 this week, moving up to No. 4. The Bears defeated three ranked teams to claim the Collegiate Tennis Challenge title; No. 32 SMU, No. 11 Cal and No. 5 USC 4-3 in the final.

Texas moved up two places from No. 8 to No. 6 on the strength of its hard-fought 4-3 win at home over then-No. 2 (now No. 3) Ohio State. Texas A&M also scored a 4-3 win over the Buckeyes, and the Aggies, winners of 11 straight dual matches, jumped from No. 11 to No. 8.

Wake Forest continues its run atop the national rankings, while Virginia moved up one spot from No. 3 to No. 2.

Mikael Torpegaard of Ohio State and Petros Chrysochos of Wake Forest hold down the No. 1 and 2 singles ranking, while Cameron Norrie of TCU saw a big jump forward this week, going from No. 23 to No. 3. Juan Benitez of Baylor is the other new entry to the Top 10 this week, rising from No. 15 to No. 5.

Christian Seraphim and Skander Mansouri of Wake Forest regained the No. 1 doubles national ranking this week, and Georgia’s Jan Zielinski and Robert Loeb soared into the Top 10, going from No. 30 to No. 8.

A reminder that the national team rankings feature the Top 50 teams. Coaches will have access to the unpublished national team rankings on the ITA website.
