 TUCSON, Ariz.--- Junior Naoki Takeda and senior Sumeet Shinde both find themselves garnering national attention this week, as both were placed at No. 58 and No. 74 respectively in the latest ITA individual poll, released on Tuesday.

Tuesday marks the first time Arizona has boasted two or more ranked individuals in the same week since March 30, 2010, while Takeda's No. 58 ranking is the Wildcats' highest since Jay Goldman was placed at No. 36 in the country back on Sept. 4, 2009.

The rankings are well deserved on both ends, as Takeda boasts a team-best overall mark of 15-3 so far, while owning a perfect 7-0 dual match record, including going 5-0 from the No. 1 position. He's won eight singles matches in a row, including claiming wins over two ranked individuals on the year.

The junior has gone 3-1 in doubles play during the spring so far, while boasting a perfect 2-0 mark on court one.

Shinde has also been impressive this season, as he's posted a 6-2 overall mark this spring, while going 4-1 from the No. 1 spot, including earning a win over a ranked opponent. The senior has also been dominant in doubles action thus far, as he's posted a 2-1 mark on court one.

In addition, Takeda and Shinde have combined to go 2-0 as a doubles tandem this season.

Arizona will be back in action this weekend, as it'll take on Nevada, Saturday at noon MST out at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center.
