On Tuesday afternoon the NCAA announced the host sites for the 2019-2022 NCAA Championships with the National Tennis Center in Lake Nona the big winner. The new "Home of American Tennis" was awarded the 2019 and 2021 NCAA Division I Championships plus the 2022 NCAA Division III Championships. The full release from the USTA is available here. Oklahoma State University was awarded the 2020 NCAA D1 Championships, which will be the first time Stillwater has hosted, while the University of Illinois was chosen as host of the 2022 NCAA D1 Championships. Illinois previously hosted four years ago in 2013 when Virginia won its first national championship on the infamous net touch by Puget on championship point for UCLA. Below in the table are the sites for the next five years with 2018 sites announced several years ago.

The ITA released its latest team, singles, and doubles rankings today with the Wake Forest men and Florida women remaining in the top spots. In the men's team rankings the only change in the top 10 was Texas moving up from 8 to 7 while UCLA fell from 7 to 8. Arkansas made the biggest jump in the top 50 by coming up 16 spots to No. 34 after defeating Kentucky and Vanderbilt while Tennessee had the second biggest jump by climbing 13 spots to No. 46 after picking up wins over Alabama, Charlotte, and LSU.  

Over half of the women's top 10 changed with Vanderbilt making the leap up to No. 2 after defeating Florida and South Carolina while Georgia fell from No. 2 to No. 4 after losing to Texas A&M. TCU and USC each came up seven spots to No. 24 and No. 32 respectively. TCU's jump was due to an upset win over Texas Tech while USC's jump was courtesy of a pair of road win over Arizona State and Arizona. 

These team rankings were comprised of each team's nine best wins and all losses and it'll stay at nine up through the selection of the NCAA field.

    Any chance of a West Coast D1 school hosting before 2050? Understand Orlando twice with their new mega complex but Stillwater and anywhere in NC? Really? You want to grow the sport of college tennis host somewhere where people want to go - preferably a State that doesn't discriminate against it's own people.

    Speaking of the fake repeal - sounds like there is now a threat to public universities who resist discrimination. -"proposed legislation that would force the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State to pull out of the Atlantic Coast Conference if the league mounts another boycott of championships in the state"
