W. Tennis Continues to Rise in ITA Rankings
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami entered the top 25 of the ITA polls this week, as announced Wednesday afternoon.
While the organization usually only releases its computerized poll at this point in the season, it re-added the ITA Coaches Poll to the rankings, providing two lists, due to the unique nature of the 2021 season.
Miami checks in at No. 20 in the ITA Coaches Poll and places No. 22 in the computerized rankings. Those are the two highest marks for the Hurricanes in 2021.
The Hurricanes, coming off a 7-0 sweep of Virginia Tech and a 4-3 win over then-eighth-ranked Virginia last week, moved up from their No. 26 spot in the computerized poll released March 30.
Miami is one of 11 ACC teams in the computerized top-50 rankings, with eight in the top 30 and seven in the top 25. The ITA Coaches Poll has 10 ACC teams in the top 50, with seven of them inside the top 20.
The ITA has also paused updates to its singles and doubles rankings, leaving all of the Hurricanes’ ranked players and pairs in the same spot. Fifth-year senior Estela Perez-Somarriba continues to sit fourth in the singles rankings, followed by freshman Isabella Pfennig at No. 17.
In doubles, Perez-Somarriba and Pfennig remain No. 19 in the nation, while second-year freshmen Diana Khodan and Maya Tahan hold steady at No. 20 overall.
Additional information about the ITA’s decision to adjust its rankings release procedures can be found HERE, along with the full lists.
Miami (11-6, 8-4 ACC) concludes its conference slate Friday with its final road match of the year, a 4 p.m. contest against Florida State in Tallahassee, Fla. The Seminoles are ranked fourth on the computerized list and fifth in the ITA Coaches Poll.
