The time has come to honor the best tennis players in the country at the D1 level with the honorees for HERO of The Week. Each week we will have a list of nominees for you to vote for that stood out in competition over the week prior.
Voting will take place in the poll at the bottom of this article following the list of nominees. Voting only takes place in the poll, and the voting will close on Friday at 10:00 a.m. PST for each poll.
Without further ado, here are the nominees for HERO of The Week!
Alberto Barroso-Campos, South Florida
Barroso-Campos is the lead player for USF, and played up to that standard in a dual match against Old Dominion. As the 69th ranked singles player, he took his opponent out in straight sets, and also won his doubles match later in the day.
Florian Kraenzler, Green Bay
Kraenzler and the Phoenix had a dual match with 10th ranked Gustavus Adolphus of D3 competition, and found the goings to be rough throughout the day. Taking on the first ranked player in D3, this Phoenix standout won in three sets after dropping the first and being pushed against the wall.
Alex Lebedev, Notre Dame
Ranked 33rd in D1, Lebedev faced off with Parker Wynn of Louisville, the 90th ranked player in singles competition. The match went three sets and each resulted in a 6-1 score, but the Fighting Irish star fought his way to a victory.
Arshak Ghazaryan, Seattle
Ghazaryan was his team's only winner in a dual match with Nevada. In a singles match, he won in three sets and clinched the W behind a 10-8 final set.
Cameron Klinger, Vanderbilt
Klinger and the Commodores took down Ole Miss in a conference showdown 4-3, and partly because of their standout singles player. Ranked 57th in the country, Klinger took out the 19th ranked player from Ole Miss in three sets.
Nuno Borges, Mississippi State
Borges was in a star-studded matchup to kick off singles action, facing off against the seventh-ranked player in D1 while being ranked fourth himself. The contest may not have lived up to the hype, but the straight set win will definitely be one to remember this season for Borges.
Mathieu Rajaonah, Grand Canyon
Rajaonah is the lead singles player for GCU, but did not get things off to a great start. But after falling behind one set after a 6-0 loss, the Lopes standout roared back and claimed the next two to kick off a GCU 4-3 win.
