TEMPE, Ariz. – Ole Miss Women’s Tennis (13-11, 5-8 SEC) remained No. 50 in the ITA Tennis Rankings sponsored by Tennis-Point on Wednesday. Sabina Machalova moved up two positions to No. 42 in singles and fell back one to No. 88 in doubles alongside Rachel Krzyzak.

Wednesday’s Collegiate Tennis Rankings sponsored by Tennis-Point are the final ITA rankings released prior to the NCAA Team Championships. The ultimate team rankings for the 2022 season will be released on May 25, followed by the final singles and doubles rankings on June 2.
