Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25: May 5, 2021

Pat Mitsch | May 05, 2021

ORLANDO, Fla. – North Carolina and Virginia topped the penultimate women's and men's Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 polls, respectively, as the NCAA Championships are set to begin this weekend.

 

The Virginia men were seeded No. 5 by the NCAA in the men's field, which saw Florida, Baylor, Tennessee and Texas seeded Nos. 1-4, respectively. The Top 4 seeds on the women's side synched with this poll's Top 4 of North Carolina, Texas, Georgia and UCLA.

 

The final Tennis Channel/USTA Top 25 will be released following the completion of the NCAA Championships on Tennis Channel's and the USTA's platforms, including the USTA’s Top 25 homepage. The USTA National Campus in Orlando, Fla., will host the team championships from the Round of 16 through the finals, May 16-22.

 

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 14 voters, making the maximum number of points available 300.

 

The voting panel includes: Casey Angle, former ITA Director of Championships; Virgil Christian, former USTA Director of College Tennis; Richard Croome, former sports journalist; Sonny Dearth, sports journalist for the Daily Press (Va.) and Virginian-Pilot; Judy Dixon, former UMass head coach; Alex Gruskin, Cracked Racquets; J. Webb Horton, former FGCU head coach; Granger Huntress, Texas College Tennis; Bobby Knight, College Tennis Today; Brandon Moglen, Tennis Channel; Michael Patrick, former Tennessee head coach; Lisa Stone, Parenting Aces; Caitlin Thompson, Racquet Magazine; Scott Treibly, USTA; Shannon Wrege/Dallas Oliver, Tennis Recruiting Network.
