CHARLOTTESVILLE – Jarmere Jenkins (Class of 2013) earned a career-high ATP singles ranking after his first career Challenger Tour final and Treat Huey (Class of 2008) won the doubles title at the Charlottesville Challenger to highlight last week’s action for Virginia alumni on the pro tour.
Jenkins reached the singles and doubles finals of the Traralgon Challenger in Australia, upsetting world No. 114, Go Soeda of Japan, in the first round for the highest-ranked win of his career. Jenkins moved up 38 places in the ATP singles rankings to a career-high No. 220. After reaching the doubles final in Traralgon with Mitchell Krueger, Jenkins moved up to No. 231 in the world in doubles, just shy of his career high of No. 222 set in July. He will play a second Challenger Tour event in Traralgon this week.
Huey won his second career title at the Charlottesville Challenger, teaming with Frederik Nielsen to win the doubles championship.
