ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – The UCF men’s tennis team remains with two ranked individuals as Gabriel Decamps and Alan Rubio check in at No. 22 and No. 120 respectively in the latest release of the ORACLE/ITA rankings.
No. 22 Decamps has gone 1-1 since the last individual rankings were released on Feb. 6 which saw him at No. 17. Decamps defeated Indiana’s Antonio Cembellin 6-3, 6-3 in the team’s first win of the season. He was bested by No. 113 Mattias Siimar 6-0, 6-2 of No. 16 Michigan.
