PHILADELPHIA - In the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association Rankings, Penn freshman Connie Hsu is currently ranked 15th in the country. Hsu recently picked up the 30th victory of her rookie campaign against Richmond this past Sunday. She is also 18-2 in doubles play, teaming up with both Alexa Ely and Jaime Yapp-Shing throughout the season.
Despite only allowing six games in seven total matches during the spring, Hsu fell one spot from her previous ranking of 14th. Hsu did not allow a game to her opponent in three spring matches to date and has shutout her opponent five times dating back to the fall season. The most games she has allowed an opponent during a match this spring is two. Her only two losses on the season came in three set thrillers during the fall and they were both against nationally ranked opponents. The most recent defeat came in a third-set tiebreaker against Denise Muresan of Michigan, who is currently ranked eighth in the country, in the ITA Indoor Championships in early November.
Hsu is one of three Ivy League players to find themselves ranked nationally. Holly Cao of Harvard is currently ranked 47th and Molly Scott of Dartmouth is ranked 122nd in the country.
Hsu and the rest of her Quaker teammates will look to rebound from a tough defeat at the hands of Richmond this past Sunday. They are back in action this Saturday, February 19 at 1 p.m. against Stony Brook. The women's match will run simultaneously with the men's action
