Turati, Chrysochos Top Oracle/ITA D-I Preseason Singles Rankings; Fields Announced for Oracle Masters and All-American Championships

The first Oracle/ITA individual rankings for the 2018-2019 season were released today, with Bianca Turati of Texas at the top for the women and NCAA champion Petros Chrysochos of Wake Forest No. 1 for the men.

The fall rankings are often as interesting for who isn't in them as for who is, and several top men are not in school this fall and therefore not ranked: NCAA finalist Borna Gojo of Wake Forest, Texas A&M's Patrick Kypson, North Carolina's Will Blumberg, Florida's Alfredo Perez and Kentucky's Ryo Matsumura. UCLA's Ena Shibahara is missing from the women's rankings.  For complete rankings, click on the headers below. The Newcomer Rankings are complete as shown.
