The ITA released its latest team, singles, and doubles rankings today with the Wake Forest men and Florida women remaining in the top spots though Florida's gap narrowed a good bit after its loss to Vanderbilt. TCU and UCLA entered the top five on the men's side after TCU beat Baylor and Texas while UCLA defeated USC. Baylor's losses to TCU and Texas Tech knocked them down two spots to No. 6, USC fell one spot to No. 7, and Oklahoma State fell three spots to No. 8 after losing to Oklahoma. Purdue made the biggest jump in the top 50 by coming up 19 spots to No. 35 after the Boilers went on the road and beat both Minnesota and Wisconsin. 

There wasn't a ton of movement in the women's top 10 with Stanford making the biggest climb by coming up two spots to No. 6 after defeating California while North Carolina and Georgia Tech fell two spots to No. 5 and No. 8. Georgia Tech came up short against Duke on Sunday while North Carolina's drop was due to a few of its best wins dropping a point here and there. Clemson made the biggest jump in the top 50 by coming up eight spots to No. 39 after the Tigers defeated Boston College and Notre Dame. The women's top 10 would have looked different had Auburn's win over Georgia been keyed in before the Monday cut-off but it wasn't so that result will go in for next week. 

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. If you want to get an early look at what next week's rankings look like you can view my real-time rankings which are available to all College Tennis Today subscribers. As a note right now I am showing the first-run of next week's rankings and will do the second run on Sunday after the completion of all matches. 

In the men's singles rankings, TCU junior Cameron Norrie replaced Ohio State's Mikael Torpegaard for the top spot. Norrie is 16-1 on the year with all but two of those wins coming over a ranked opponent. Wake Forest's Christian Seraphim and Skander Mansouri remain at the top of the men's doubles rankings with Georgia's Robert Loeb and Jan Zielinski coming up one spot to No. 2.

In the women's singles rankings the top seven remains the same with Ohio State's Francesca Di Lorenzo still at No. 1. North Carolina's Hayley Carter and Jessie Aney remain at No. 1 in the women's doubles rankings with Vanderbilt's Astra Sharma and Emily Smith coming up one spot to No. 2.
