TEAM/SINGLES/DOUBLES

TEMPE, Ariz.
– With the dual match season on the horizon, Oracle and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the updated Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Men’s Division I National Rankings on Wednesday.

A new wrinkle this year sees the national ranking panel voting on the Top 25 teams, with computerized rankings are in effect for singles and doubles. The national team rankings will shift to the computer system following the ITA National Team Indoor Championship in February.

Two-time defending NCAA national champion, the University of Virginia, opens the 2017 dual match season atop the national rankings. Petros Chrysochos of Wake Forest is the top-ranked singles player. Chrysochos was a consistent presence in the 2016 fall national tournaments, and claimed the 2016 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men’s All-American national title back in October. The Demon Deacons also occupy the No. 1 ranking in doubles, with 2016 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championship doubles champions Christian Seraphim and Skander Mansouri.
