Orkin gets UF's 2nd point
Kessler gets 2 games back,
Perez-blanco about to get UF's 3rd point.
Ingildsen in a 5-all dog fight in his 2nd set
Perez now down 0-4 in his 2nd
Ingildsen saves 4 set points for 5-5 in the 2nd then gets a 2nd straight no-ad point to break for 6-5. Will serve for the match and the Gator win.
Ingildsen serves it out to love. 4-0 Gators. So much for that upset special.
Ingildsen wins 7-5, Gators win 4-0
Well that didn't suck.
Many times this year, the team was unable to finish in matches. Today we played our best doubles on all three courts of the season. Singles play was competitive but in second sets the Georgia Tech players started to lose their resolve, and our players jumped all over them. Lessons learned, and a great way to end the home season. I believe Florida will give Virginia a much better match than most assume. The coaches have done an outstanding job of bringing this team along as the season winds down. They "held serve" by getting to the point in this tournament where they were expected to be due to seedings. Anything from this point on is gravy. No matter, the program is finally REALLY on the way up with some outstanding players coming in the fall. It's going to be a fun ride!
I was all set to come to Gainesville yesterday - but the weather and forecast just made it iffy. Glad the team played tough. Hopefully they can take Virginia.

Thanks for all you bring to the table coach. Clearly a tough road vs UVA, but I bet our guys make it a war.
The only disappointment I have us that a bad stretch mid season kept us from a better seed and a more reasonable shot at final 8 or even final 4. Can't let winnable matches get away cause here is where you pay for it.
But we know the future is bright
Well the good news is, I think our match is at 9a? If there was ever a time to catch a team a bit off it's in a breakfast match

Imagine the doubles point will come down to the seniors Orkin and Lippman....would be something if they could pull it off. Little chance for UF without winning the doubles I'm afraid

everyone is facing someone different from the first time they met.
Getting blitzed early in singles, down 0-3 on 4 courts. Perez and Ingildsen up 2-1 at #1 and #5. Kessler and Chase were the courts I thought could do something positive, see if they rebound
