NCAA Championships Update Report
For the first time in college tennis history, top NCAA Division I men’s and women’s teams will compete in Super Regional matches this Friday and Saturday as the Road to Orlando is just one win away for 32 teams. In the past, 16 men’s and 16 women’s teams would make their way to the national championship site following two rounds of regionals. By adding a Super Regional, only the top eight will advance to Orlando to the quarterfinals this year.
The defending champion Stanford women’s team will host Kansas on Friday at 2 p.m. PT while the 2019 champion Wake Forest men will continue their back-to-back bid when they play host to Oklahoma, also on Friday. The third-seeded Cardinal is one of the hottest teams in the country, riding a 19-match winning streak. Stanford has won 61 of its last 64 home matches and is 46-5 during the month of May since 2010, a stretch that has produced four NCAA titles.
The Demon Deacons regional win over Kentucky was the fifth consecutive NCAA Regional title for Wake (31-3), which matched a program record for wins in a season with the result.
