These tables show each player's spot in the lineup at the end of the 2008 spring season. Players listed as N/A are not in school for one reason or another - they could be playing professional tennis or beginning their collegiate career this coming fall. Factors such as injury, illness, or academic ineligibility could have led to a player being on the bench. Moreover, the charts do not include athletes who are playing only doubles for their respective team.

Taking those factors into account, it is still shocking how many of the top players in the nation from just a year ago did not break into the top 6 consistently as freshmen. 22 of the top 100 athletes were unable to crack the starting lineup by the end of their first collegiate season. More players (22) were on the bench then those that played first and second singles combined (21). Even the most highly touted, highly recruited athletes need to consider playing time as they navigate the recruiting process.
