    We will be seeded 15 and host. Probably see fsu here as the 3 seed, along with a small conference AQ and maybe a team like Cal, that beat us indoors, as the 2 seed.

    would they pair sec teams in the same region? that is, vandy and s. carolina together?
    or would they ship cal to vandy and then pair us w/ texas and send s. carolina to oklahoma?

    The NCAA has out two SEC teams together in the same region many times before. The NCAA committee on tournaments who makes the tournament seeds does not always just go with the ITA rankings. Sometimes they tweak the rankings a bit. I feel we will host a regional. However it is never set in stone when you have an ITA ranking near 16.

    We are seeded 15, opening up with Denver. FSU-Cal the other match up.

    Should we get to the sweet 16, UVA is the 2 seed.

    Too bad. Going to be tough to make the sweet 16 for sure, but would be pretty much impossible to beat undefeated UVA with their ridiculously stacked lineup (only in tennis with its ridiculous rankings would they not be seeded #1). Was hoping to draw UGA as they look like the weakest of the top 5.

    Should get by Denver. FSU we beat earlier this year in Tally pretty easily. Cal handed us a loss at the indoors, winning doubles and taking matches at 1, 2 and 3. Though our lineup order is vastly different now.

    About as expected, unfortunate to draw UVA though. If we get that far I don't expect a lot of success against them.

    This team a month ago did not look like a team that would qualify to host a regional. The fact that the matches are at home is very important. The team will be healthy and concentrating only on tennis now that the semester is finished. The team will take it one match at a time. And if we qualify for the Sweet Sixteen at the University of Illinois, this first season with Coach Bryan Shelton at the helm will be a success.

    I agree, mking round of 16 in a transition year is definitely a success. Team should have more talent and depth next year...in fact if all the potential guys are there it may be the deepest roster I have ever seen at UF.

    You have to believe there will be a shakeup in the roster again. You have three freshman coming in along with Hildago and Newman. Rumor has it that Luke Johnson will be at Clemson next year.
