The Most Influential Colleges in Tennis Today

The Most Influential Colleges in Tennis Today

Find the colleges and universities that have the biggest impact in tennis based on the influence of their alumni in tennis. See which schools have proven histories of attracting and cultivating some of the most influential athletes today.

Many of the best colleges and universities for tennis are also highly ranked academic institutions. At the top of our list is the prestigious Stanford University. This college athletics program registers an influence score more than twice that of the runner-up, Harvard University. Stanford enjoys its ranking on the strength of John McEnroe’s seven Grand Slam wins and his outsized public persona. Stanford’s chest-bumping identical twins and all-time men’s doubles champs Bob and Mike Bryan rank just behind McEnroe. Harvard’s second-place finish is driven by the Danish-born Caroline Wozniacki, who became the first Scandinavian woman to rank as the top player in the world, a title she held for 71 weeks between 2010 and 2011.
