Clemson Women’s Tennis Earns #11 Final Ranking

June 7, 2010

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced its final 2010 rankings on Monday, with Clemson’s women’s team coming in at #11 nationally. The Tigers went 24-6 in 2010, and reached the NCAA Round of 16 before bowing out to the National Champion Stanford Cardinal.

Clemson’s appearance in the Sweet 16 was the fourth straight for the program and the sixth in the last seven seasons. It marks the eighth straight top-20 finish for the program, and the 19th all-time. The program picked up its 600th win all-time this year, and Head Coach Nancy Harris picked up her 400th career win all-time and 200th at Clemson.

Sophomore Ina Hadziselimovic each earned All-America honors for the second straight season in doubles, as the duo closed the season ranked 8th nationally and #1 in the region. Hadziselimovic closed her career as the school’s all-time winningest doubles player with 105 wins. She had a school-record 35 in 2010, while Bek had 31. As a pair, the two were 25-9 overall.

Bek also closed the season as the team’s highest ranked singles player, coming in at #20 nationally. She played in the singles championships for the second straight year and was named a singles All-American by virtue of her final top-20 ranking. It is her fourth career All-America honor, one shy of the school record held by current world top-250 players Julie Coin and Ani Mijacika.

Keri Wong, a 2010 All-ACC selection, closed the season ranked 58th nationally and #8 in the Carolina Region. Nelly Ciolkowski, the 2010 Carolina Region Rookie Player of the Year, closed the season ranked 100th in the nation and 12th in the region. She went 29-8 on the season. Hadziselimovic closed the year ranked #104, as she was also an All-ACC selection.
