Tying the highest individual ranking in Washington tennis history, Clement Chidekh moved up one more spot to No. 2 in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association singles poll released Wednesday.
Chidekh, a native of Lyon, France, is 14-3 for his junior year and 3-0 in singles matches. He first jumped into the top 10 of the singles rankings after an 11-win fall season that saw him make the semifinals of the national individual tournaments, the ITA All-America Championships and the ITA National Fall Championships.
Chidekh ties the UW record-high ranking previously reached by Alex Vlaski in the 2004 season.
