Jomby continued his stellar play, as he recorded a 6-3, 6-4 win over No. 11 Harrison Adams.

Friday’s win marked the third time this season Jomby has defeated an opponent ranked higher than him. The Nantes, France, native is now 13-1 on the year in singles play, and 3-0 in the SEC.

On Tuesday morning, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced that Jomby had moved into the top 10 of the singles rankings for the first time in his career. Jomby is the highest-ranked UK singles player, with Beck Pennington slotted at No. 67 in this week's rankings. Jomby and Lai escalated up to No. 26 in doubles after their win on Friday. Kentucky as a team moved back into the top 15 at No. 15 in Tuesday’s rankings.
