Four University of Georgia men’s tennis players earned top 20 preseason rankings, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced Wednesday afternoon.
In singles, Bulldogs Trent Bryde and Philip Henning lead the way for Georgia. Suwanee, Georgia, native Bryde will begin the 2021 campaign as the ninth-ranked singles player in the nation, while Henning, a native of Bleomfontein, South Africa, checks in at No. 18. Bryde and Henning have now been Georgia’s highest-ranked singles players in consecutive rankings as both had top 15 finishes following the 2019-20 campaign.
Bryde and Tyler Zink are once again Georgia’s top-ranked doubles duo with their No. 8 ranking to start the 2021 season. Wrapping up the 2021 preseason rankings for Georgia is the doubles team of Henning and Blake Croyder at No. 20.
