Undefeated men’s tennis heads on the road

Chris Caraveo

Coming off their fifth shutout of the season, the Longhorns will travel north for two matches this weekend with a higher ranking in front of their name.

Texas moved up four spots to No. 10 in the ITA Rankings after they scored two wins against ranked opponents on  Jan. 26, in Nashville, Tenn.

The Longhorns put themselves in good position by taking early control of their six matches last weekend — all wins — and by winning the doubles point in each one. Texas faces less pressure to win at more positions, needing only three singles wins instead of four after doubles play.

Juniors Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen will lead the way for Texas in doubles with a 5-0 dual-match record and a No. 5 national ranking.

The team will have two more chances to improve their doubles streak when they face No. 31 Michigan on Friday, followed by No. 22 Illinois on Sunday.
