Final Tennis Rankings For 2019 Casts Shadows

Final Tennis Rankings
ACC Nation Staff @accnation –

When you take a look at the ITA collegiate rankings things are coming up roses. At least, for the ACC women. Their singles and doubles numbers indicate another year of experience and depth. The long shadows are cast upon the conference men. The final tennis rankings for 2019, specifically in singles, raises questions. However, there’s plenty of room for growth. Without a doubt it’s an opportunity for emerging stars.

The first ITA team rankings begin on January 8. There won’t be a complete snapshot of team, singles and doubles rankings until February 5. The seemingly short ACC season (3 1/2 months) concludes with the conference championships in mid-April. The NCAA Championships follow close behind.

Like most sports, tennis is non-stop. The ‘off-season’ is more full-blown with tournaments available year-round. When it comes to conference play, the sprint becomes a marathon.

The singles rankings for men point to a deficit in mid-range players. With just three individuals in the top 50 and only one in the top 5 this doesn’t look like the same conference as in year’s past.

As opposed to the ACC men, the women’s single rankings are more than promising. With a bevy of familiar names bringing experience and multiple new faces showing promise the conference is primed for another competitive season.

What, if anything do we gather from the doubles rankings? With seven pairings ranked in the top 50 out of 125 and four in the top 15 there’s promise.

The doubles numbers are solid for men and women in the ACC. The development of duo’s as the season progresses should be interesting to watch.

The opening weeks of play in January will serve to confirm or wipe away the shadow cast on the ACC men by the final tennis rankings of 2019.
