Ricardo Rosas

Head Women’s Coach
Miami University (OH)

Rosas was named head coach of the tennis program in May of 2017. In that time, the RedHawks have advanced to a pair of MAC Tournament Championships, while capturing a regular season and tournament championship title. Rosas is 24-20 overall and 13-2 in MAC play since taking over the helm of the tennis program.

This past season the RedHawks captured both the regular season and tournament championship, en route to advancing to the NCAA Tournament. Rosas was named MAC Coach of the Year following the 2019 campaign.

Miami has not just succeeded on the court under Rosas. In the past two years, Miami has placed five student-athletes on the Academic All-MAC team, and as a team, the RedHawks were placed on the ITA All-American Team in both 2018 and 2019.

Rosas has been a fixture around the RedHawk program, having spent 15 seasons as an assistant coach. He was named the program’s Associate Head Coach in 2013. In addition, Rosas had two tenures as Interim Head Coach, including in 2010 when he was named Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year. He also served in a similar capacity at the end of the 2006-07 campaign.

During his time as an assistant at Miami, Rosas helped guide the program to eight-straight MAC regular-season titles (2009-16), five MAC Tournament titles and six NCAA Tournament appearances (2009, 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2015, 2019). The RedHawks tallied a 226-151 overall record during his 15 seasons, including an impressive 107-24 MAC mark.

As the interim head coach in 2010, Rosas led Miami to an 18-7 record and a perfect 8-0 MAC mark. The ‘Hawks then went on to win the MAC Tournament and competed in the NCAA Tournament.
Rosas brings an impressive tennis background and strong experience as an international competitor. As a junior player, Rosas was one of Mexico’s finest, ranking No. 26 in singles and No. 12 in doubles in the ITF World Rankings.

In 1993-94, he participated in the U.S. Open, French Open and Wimbledon as an 18-year old. Following his junior career, he went on to play four years on the ATP Tour (1994 to 1997), reaching career-best rankings of No. 574 in singles and No. 375 in doubles.

His international experience also includes representing Mexico in several events, including the 1994 Davis Cup. After his playing career ended, Rosas spent one year at the Gary Kesl Tennis Academy in Deerfield, Fla.

Rosas also recently helped coach the Mexican National Team in both the 2018 and 2019 Fed Cup.
