If you mean bounce back to being a top 5 team, I think we need two

players who will be in top 15 in the ITA rankings. On this years team only Soderlund appears to have that kind of skill/ability, but he is not currently ranked very high (#35), so on the actual courts we have much less skill/talent than what we have been accustomed to in the last 12+- years. We do have some young players like Ross and Lord who might become such players, but they will need to get better and probably a lot better to reach that level.

It is hard to accept that we are just an average ACC team this year after being the best seemingly forever or at least for 12+- years.

One thing about tennis unlike most team sports is that if you can recruit a #1 or #2 player who wins 50% to 70% of his matches things can turn around quickly and that could mean next year, if we get such a player.
