Player of the Week: Texas A&M's Valentin Vacherot ran his conference win streak to 10 matches, to remain perfect at 10-0 this season to tie for the league lead in wins and winning percentage. Overall, Vacherot has won six straight matches and 13 of his last 14 matches overall. During the 14 match stretch Vacherot has claimed nine straight set wins and three victories after dropping the first set. He posted an impressive 6-3, 6-2 win over Kento Yamada of Kentucky to open the week and earn the Aggies first singles point in a tough road matchup. Followed the win at Kentucky with a thrilling three-set triumph over Billy Rowe to clinch the win after the Aggies and Commodores were forced to moved their match up from Saturday to Friday due to weather. After traveling over 1,300 miles and playing a match the day before, Vacherot outlasted Rowe to earn his first career last-match standing victory for the Aggies. With the Aggies trailing 1-0 after doubles play, Vacherot was the first singles match off the court as he claimed a 6-3, 6-4 win over senior Reese Stalder of TCU to put the match back on level ground. With the 2-0 singles weekend, Vacherot improved to 10-0 in SEC play, securing wins in each of A&M's conference matches to date. The wins at Kentucky and TCU brings his road win streak to seven matches. In doubles play, Vacherot posted a 2-1 record last week, moving his record on court three to 7-1 this season. His nine dual doubles victories is the third most by an Aggie this season.

Freshman of the Week: Joining the Commodores in January, Macsen Sisam has stepped up to prove to be a huge addition to Vanderbilt. Earning a spot at No. 3 and 4 in singles, the freshman has earned 14 singles victories and is currently riding a three-match winning streak. In conference matches, Sisam holds a 6-4 record, earning his first ranked singles win, upsetting Texas A&M's No. 98 Barnaby Smith, 7-6 (4), 6-2 this past weekend to put the Commodores in the lead over the top-10 ranked Aggies. He also defeated LSU's Malik Bhatnagar, 6-1, 7-6,
