UCLA Men's Tennis Ranked Fourth in Final ITA Poll

June 5, 2000

After posting a 24-4 overall record, the UCLA men's tennis team closed out its 2000 campaign with a No. 4 national ranking in the final ITA poll released June 1.

The No. 2 seed Bruins reached the NCAA Championships quarterfinals before falling to No. 10 seed Tennessee 4-1.

In the individual rankings, senior Jong-Min Lee moved up seven spots in the poll to earn an all-time-high No. 20 ranking. Lee also garnered All-America honors after reaching the round of 16 in the NCAA Singles Championships. Junior Jean-Noel Grinda, who was ranked No. 3 in the ITA preseason poll before sitting out the first half of the season due to back and shoulder injuries, is listed at a season-high No. 33. Senior Brandon Kramer, who fractured his right (playing) wrist in early May and was therefore unable to compete in the NCAA Tournament, finishes the season ranked No. 41. Pac-10 Freshman of the Year Jean-Julien Rojer dropped six spots to No. 70.

In doubles, the senior tandem of Lee and Kramer, who were ranked No. 2 in the previous ITA poll released May 3, finish with a No. 4 ranking despite not seeing any action in the NCAA Tournament due to Kramer's injury. The Pac-10 Doubles Team of the Year also earned All-America honors after posting a 15-6 overall record and claiming the Pac-10 Doubles Title in Ojai. Also ranked in doubles is the duo of Grinda and Rojer, which leaped to an all-time high No. 23 after being listed at No. 41 in the previous poll.
