Two Toreros Earn National Preseason Rankings

Jan. 13, 2004

Pierrick Ysern had one of the best falls in San Diego tennis history and he was recently awarded by his hard work with a preseason ITA national ranking of 11th. He was joined by teammate Jason Pongsrikul who earned a preseason ranking of No. 75. As a team the Toreros will head into their spring dual match schedule ranked 42nd in the nation.

The sophomore from Paris, France started off the year at The ITA All American in Chattanooga, TN. He won 5 matches in a row with a huge win over Florida's Janne Homia who is ranked 5 in the nation! Ysern eventually lost in the quarterfinals in a tough three-set match. He was honored in early November when he was chosen to play in the National Indoors at the University of Michigan. This is by invitation only and for the top 32 players in the nation! He defeated Matt Cloer of Florida State 6-3, 6-1 in the first round. Cloer is No. 22 in the nation. In the round of 16 Ysern lost to Romain Ambert who is No. 10 in the nation 6-4, 6-2.

Only five players in the nation reached the round of 16 at the ITA All American and the National Indoors and Ysern was one of them! Overall for the fall he had 3 wins in the top 25 in the nation.
