Based on this excerpt, sounds like it is human voting rather than computer rankings
The ITA rankings (2020-21 Oracle ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings | ITA #WeAreCollegeTennis) are done by computer, though they also do a coaches poll (at least for this season).
Selection show tonight! We’re looking like a lock for a top 4 seed, with a pretty good chance at #1 overall
5 seed…a bit surprising honestly. I have a feeling we’re primed for a run though!
Quick 4 - 0 win vs Farleigh Dickinson in the First Round of the NCAA tournament. On to a Second round match-up w/ Stanford, who swept LSU, at noon tomorrow afternoon in the Round of 32.
Live feed from 2nd round matches against Stanford…
Going to have to come from behind today, dropped the doubles point unfortunately
First set results looking positive in the singles matches.
Virginia point at 5, Up a break at 1, 4 & 6 in second set where UVa won first set, into 3rd set at 2 & 3… cautiously optimistic
Won at 4, 5 & 6… just need one of the top 3 to swing our way…
Edit… UVa down a double break on 3 in the 3rd set… so really down to a win on either 1 or 2.
Edit 2… Somehow came back at 3 and back on serve… down a mini break in the tie breaker at 1.
Double fault for stanford. Big ooff. WAHOOWA baby
Yeah… never want to lose that way. Ugh!
Rodesch with the comeback!
We were up a break at 1… so still looked good, but it would’ve been a nailbiter.
USC up next
Men’s team is super deep. Their #3-5 of Rodesch-Montes-Goetz would be a lot of teams’ #1-3 singles players. Very impressive to win one with a little bit of cushion after losing the doubles point.
The women’s team has a great high end of the singles lineup with Navarro and Subhash both in the top-ten of singles rankings this year.
Great year of tennis all around!
