USTA College Tennis Top 25 Oracle/ITA Singles Rankings Oracle/ITA Doubles Rankings Oracle/ITA Team Rankings

ORLANDO, Fla. – After a 2-0 weekend against in-state opponents, the UCF men's tennis team climbs one spot to No. 20 in the USTA College Tennis Top 25. Juan Pablo Grassi Mazzuchi and Gabriel Decamps continue to thrive in the Oracle/ITA singles and doubles rankings, as the latest polls have them among college tennis' elite.

The Knights have climbed as high as No. 19 as a team in the USTA College Tennis Top 25. The Black and Gold sat at No. 21 last week.

Decamps and Grassi Mazzuchi remain at No. 7 in the Oracle/ITA doubles rankings for the third straight release. They've posted a mark of 7-1 in the dual match season and have won five straight matches. Over the course of the 2019-20 year, the two have recorded a 14-4 mark. The duo has compiled a 26-10 mark over their career when playing together.

Decamps has been solid at the top spot for the Knights all season which continues to reflect in the Oracle/ITA singles rankings. Decamps currently sits at No. 19 in the rankings and boasts a mark of 6-3 with half of those wins against ranked opponents. He has climbed as high as No. 7 this season.

Grassi Mazzuchi is on a hot streak of five consecutive wins and checks in at No. 76 in this week's singles rankings. He has also compiled a mark of 6-3 in singles as he has been a staple at the No. 2 spot in the lineup. Grassi Mazzuchi stands with a record of 3-1 against ranked opponents and last week was the nation's No. 59 singles player.

The Oracle/ITA team ranking has the Knights at No. 33, the same spot they were at last week, even after a pair of wins over two in-state foes. The Black and Gold were at No. 24 in the poll in its final week of ballot voting. UCF was ranked at No. 24 in the first computer rankings and then dropped to No. 33 despite not playing a match between ranking releases.

The Knights will face No. 18 Texas Tech at 5 p.m. on Friday in Lubbok before heading to Memphis on Sunday for their first conference tilt of the season.
