This average is a combination of a players' ITA preseason national ranking, Universal Tennis Rating and ITA mid-season unpublished ranking.
Of the 10 at-large doubles selections, six were made by the National Tournament Committee from the pool of regional finalists who submitted for consideration. The remaining four selections were made by the National Tournament Committee from the remaining pool of regional finalists, All-American quarterfinalists and regional semifinalists who submitted for consideration.
