    Women play poorly in doubles and lose at #1 and #3 convincingly. Disappointing play from Embree/Oyen especially. They should be ok in singles, but this is a match they have to win to clinch a tie for first in the conference, lose and they will drop to third.

    Men can't rest after the big win on Friday. Another one of those likely 4-3 type matches against a team they are battling for NCAA seeding slot in the top 16. In other words a huge match.
    Doubles is close, down a break at 1, on serve at 2, up a break on 3

    Men got the doubles point.

    Of note, Ryan Lipman plays #1 singles for Vandy. His brother Max will be a Gator next year, one of the top recruits in the country.

    Good catch on Lipman....I see he is ranked 10 in the country so clearly having a good year. I would think his brother will jump in pretty high next season, aybe slide into BVO's slot at 3

    Women up early on 3 courts, Oyen getting crushed, and very close at 5 and 6. Have to get a split on those courts if things stay the way they are heading now

    Men are going indoors bc of rain.

    Women have 3 first sets, Embree a game from a 4th. Oyen dropped her first set.

    A&M beat ole miss, uga up on Bama, so if we win, 3 way tie for the league title. Be interesting to see how the seeding works out, no clue what the tiebreakers are.

    If it's like the tiebreak in other sports, I have to assume it will be a random draw since all are 1-1 against each other and beat everyone else.

    Hard to believe , former UF coach Ian Duvenhage has been at Vandy for 8 years. Didn't realize he had that much tenure there.

    South Carolina men knocked off Kentucky. A&M leading ole miss. If Florida wins, all 4 would be 7-5 and I think we would have the tiebreak having gone 2-1 against those 3, while south carolin and ole miss went 1-2, and we beat A&m head to head.

    Bob making quick work of his match, closing in on a 2-0 lead.
