He was a finalist for Cincinnati Sports Awards' Tennis Player of the Year and was named to the all-Ohio team by Ohio TennisZone. Vignesh has been ranked as high as number 20 in the USA and number one in Ohio.

This season, Vignesh was undefeated at first singles in the GMC and was named GMC Player of the Year for the second straight season. At the end of April, he won Flight A first singles in the 2022 Coaches Classic. He also won this season's sectional championship and was district runner-up prior to winning the Ohio state singles' crown. One of his career highlights occurred in 2019 when he placed fifth in the nation at the Winter Nationals' competition. In his spare time, he enjoys dancing and fishing as hobbies. A great student with a 4.85 GPA, Vignesh is very active in community service and has committed to play tennis next season at Yale University.
