 Hey thanks. Arthur Fery signed to Stanford for Fall 2020 (however only now playing because of COVID, played his first match last weekend I saw on another thread). These signings here are for Fall 2021 onwards  (and the odd Spring '21)

Cheers, cya - rather lost track of time

Thanks Cya

I dont know of any womens transfers, but the mens are as follows:

Transfer due to programme being dropped: Iowa: Junior Oliver Okonkwo to Drake, Sophomore Matt Clegg to Drake, Freshman Peter Alum to Pacific University. Minnesota Sophomore Dan Martin to Elon (tbc).

The players obviously feel very strong abut Iowa (power conference) cutting tennis and definitely feel for them....  twitter.com/peteralamtennis   The University of Iowa cut four athletic programs at the beginning of the pandemic in hopes of saving $5 million. Now, the men's tennis team is protesting by refusing to wear the school colors.


Other transfers: Matthis Ross (UTR 12.79) of Virginia Tech has verbally committed to Texas Tech, Senior Hamish Stewart (UTR 13.55) of Tulane will transfer and has signed with Uni of Georgia for the fall of 2021 as a graduate transfer. The Scot is currently ranked No. 29 in the ITA singles rankings and plays at the #1 spots for the Green Wave. Overall record of 66-35 in singles.


Other news: Dixie State moved from D2 to D1 tennis, Alex Hildreth is a Sophomore there.

For those interested in where the new signings and transfers will fit in the roster, College Tennis ranks has updated a number of features

@College10sRanks
20 Mar
**Team Feature Update**
Previously you could only see team cards and Projected UTR for ranked teams. I have recently added the Team mine so you can lookup all teams and it will show projected lineups and UTR's. Men are complete, women up next. (remember all tables are sortable too)

http://collegetennisranks.com/

And for balance wink 

The International Tennis Federations (ITF) new rating system, the World Tennis Number (WTN), is being rolled out in countries all over the world. This new rating system works on a scale from 1-40 (with 1 being the best players in the world). Federations covering 66% of the worlds tennis playing population have already signed on to use the WTN as their national rating system. The WTN will be another useful recruiting tool for college tennis coaches moving forward.

2021 NCAA Division I Mens and Womens Tennis Championships

Given current health and safety concerns related to COVID-19, all spring 2021 preliminary- round competition will be conducted at predetermined sites, rather than at traditional non- predetermined sites....
Current ranked top 16 have 10 schools from South or FL and then Illinois from Big 10 and USC from PAC12.

Collegetennisranks twitter: "Bid packets for hosting the first two rounds of NCAA's are due today. I believe selections are to be announced next week. If those selections are announced next week then that is before conference tournaments which clearly means the Top 16 don't host unless pure luck. I have no knowledge of whether the NCAA is even giving any preference at all to teams ranked in the Top 16 but if so it will likely have to be this week's ranking or next week's ranking that would be used as input. Should be interesting to see how it all plays out

collegetennisranks.com has an up to date list of mens and womens team rankings

Bobby Knight Twitter : Going to be interesting this year with a top 16 ranking not guaranteeing you a host spot come May. The NCAA will announce host sites a week from Friday (April 16). They will use team ranking and geographic consideration when selecting sites.

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) published the ITA Computer Team Ranking Top 50 as well as the ITA Coaches Poll Top 50 yesterday.

The ITA has decided to pause the publishing of ITA Computer Singles and Doubles Rankings on Wednesday, April 7th, 2021 as our staff and coach governance committees continue to review the best path forward for providing coaches, players, and fans the most accurate collegiate singles and doubles rankings. More information will follow as it becomes available.

The top 8 mens teams match on both rankings, however, the top 3 Big 10 teams on coach list differ to the computer : Illinois 9 vs 15, OSU 16 vs 23 Mich 17 vs 28. The other noticeable discrepancies are Stanford (29, 37) and UCLA (25,34). Will be interesting to see the NCAA picks for Championship hosting sites

ITA Rankings currently a hot topic:

During last weeks pause of the Division I singles and doubles rankings, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association conducted meetings with our staff, coaches, ITA coach governance committees, conference officials, and the NCAA regarding steps for moving forward. The following were the major takeaways from those conversations:

There is agreement that this pandemic year has been and continues to be an unusual year and that these types of rankings and selections issues are affecting multiple NCAA sports, not just tennis.
Strength in leadership can manifest itself through prudent reflection in evaluating an institutions normal procedures, especially during an unprecedented year like 2021.
It remains clear that there are strong opinions on both sides of the issue concerning identifying rankings outliers and how to properly address these players.
A simple solution that attempts to balance all of the various interests and includes consensus support is currently not available.

Response from ITA
https://www.wearecollegetennis.com/2021/04/13/more-information-on-the-2021-division-i-oracle-ita-rankings/

Cracked Rackets Chris Halioris gives a tour of his websites features and hosts a Q&A on topics pertaining to the website and to college tennis rankings in general.

https://www.crackedracquets.com/collegetennisranks-town-hall-event/

Plenty of opinions on Twitter.....@CannonKingsley @JaredHiltzik @ITA_Tennis  Bobby Knight Twitter

Impressive work. The ITAs job is to be the governing body of college tennis and you can not complete the simple task of ranking players without a computer doing it for you. By next week not 1 big ten player will be ranked. Hats off, too good
@ITA_Tennis

There are virtually no Mid Majors represented in the rankings despite significantly better records. You have teams that don't even play together regularly or have losing records in your top 90 dubs ranking. That is straight up embarrassing!!

The Big 10 and the Pac 12 chose to not play in the fall and limit their schedules and must live with the consequences....


The ITA seems as popular as the LTA hmm the Jan 2022 kick off teams are usually based on the final rankings from the previous year.

Thanks for setting this new thread up.  Illness in the family has meant tennis taking a back seat for a while but everything good now.
