Tennis Channel / USTA College Tennis Top 25: May 4, 2022

Pat Mitsch | May 04, 2022

With the NCAA Division I team championship brackets already released, the final Tennis Channel / USTA College Tennis Top 25 poll before the tournament's conclusion offers a few similar yet alternative considerations. 

 

The top eight teams in this week's men's poll are the same teams receiving top-eight seeds in the NCAA's men's bracket, just in a different order. TCU is the NCAA's No. 1 overall seed on the men's side but is ranked No. 5 here. 

 

On the women's side, North Carolina is the NCAA's top seed but relinquished its top ranking here to Texas A&M last week and remains No. 2. The Aggies, meanwhile, are the No. 7 seed in the bracket. 

Below is a full schedule of upcoming national championship tournaments across collegiate classifications:

Each team's point total, specified below, is the sum of its ranking points from the USTA's panel of voters (listed below). Each voter ranked 25 teams from Nos. 1 to 25, with the first-place team receiving 25 points and the last-place team receiving one. For control, the highest and lowest outlying ranking for each team on the ballot was removed. First-place votes were not tallied. This week's poll includes 13 voters, making the maximum number of points available 275.

 

The 2022 voting panel includes votes from the following representatives: Casey Angle (former Intercollegiate Tennis Association Director of Championships); Virgil Christian (former USTA director of college tennis); Richard Croome (former journalist); Sonny Dearth (Daily Press; Newport News, Va.); Judy Dixon (former UMass women’s head coach); Alex Gruskin (Cracked Racquets); Chris Halioris / Matt Stachowiak (Cracked Racquets); J. Webb Horton (Former Florida Gulf Coast men's head coach); Granger Huntress (Texas College Tennis); Andy Katz (NCAA.com); Bobby Knight (College Tennis Today); Brandon Moglen (Tennis Channel); Lisa Stone (Parenting Aces); Caitlin Thompson (Racquet); Scott Treibly (USTA contractor); Laura Vallverdu (Between Lines); Dallas Oliver/Shannon Wrege (Tennis Recruiting Network).
