Huskies Make Small Gains In Individual Rankings
New singles and doubles rankings for men's and women's tennis were churned out this week by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, and three Husky singles players saw slight rises in the polls.
Sophomore Denise Dy and her 20-3 singles record moved up one spot this week to No. 6 in the country. She has been as high as No. 3 this spring.
Junior Venise Chan is still close behind Dy and also moved up one spot to 15th nationally. Last season, Chan won every match at No. 1 singles except for two close losses at Arizona and Arizona State. This season she started off conference play by sweeping the top players for the Arizona schools to exact some revenge.
In the men's rankings, junior Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan stepped up two spots from 56th to 54th, just short of his season-high of 51st. Nedunchezhiyan has four wins in dual play over currently ranked players and will have many more chances when Pac-10 play begins.
Dy and senior Joyce Ardies dropped just out of the Top-10 in the doubles rankings despite not having lost a match all year at No. 1 doubles. They are now ranked 11th and have been as high as sixth.
For the men, UW's No. 3 doubles team of Tobi Obenaus and Alex Rosinski remains ranked at no. 69.
Both teams remained in the Top-20 for the second straight week, with the men coming in at 19th and the women at 20th.
