    Florida improves to 2-0 in the conference as it kicks off weekend slate
    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida earned its second conference win of the season on Friday with a 6-1 win over Ole Miss as the Gators opened a conference-filled weekend at the Alfred A. Ring Tennis Complex.

    The No. 9 Gators took an early 1-0 lead as Oliver Crawford and Andy Andrade clinched the doubles point with a 6-3 decision on court 3. Johannes Ingildsen and Alfredo Perez grabbed the first doubles win, 6-3. McClain Kessler and Duarte Vale were down a break when the doubles point was won and their match was abandoned.
    Florida took control in singles, winning four of the first sets. Vale put the Gators up 2-0 after rolling past Jan Soren Hain 6-2, 6-0. Crawford found his rhythm again with a 2-set decision over #73 Tim Sandkaulen, ending a four-match losing streak.

    Men take the doubles point winning on courts 2 and 3, were in trouble at 1
    Quick start in singles but have called a little
    Greif and Vale at 5 and 6 win first sets easily....Vale rolling in his second too
    Ingildsen loses his first set. His tendency to start slow continues.
    Riffice started fast and held on to win 6-4 at 3
    Andrade in a tiebreak
    Crawford 6-3 in his first, need for him to get a win today in prep for Sunday

    Crawford with a strong second makes it 3-0
    Grief closes it out at 5 with a 6-4 win
    Riffice and Ingildsen were up in their second sets, Andrade was at 1-1

    Very nice solid outing. Like to see Ingildsen start singles a little quicker, and Andrade to avoid some funky stretches....but thats nitpicking.
    Big match vs Miss St on tap

    Guys finish their matches....Riffice closes it 4 and 3
    Ingildsen wins his second, Andrade up 5-2 in his. Assume they will play super tiebreak for 3rd

    Great to get back outside for the Friday night match against Ole Miss in the SEC. A few lineup adjustments which will continue to occur as we have eight players capable of SEC level competition vying for six slots in the singles lineup. Huge match on Sunday at 1:00, at the Ring!

    Very curious to see the lineup for Sunday. Greif has been great every time out, but certainly lacks the experience of a Kessler. Need Perez to find his real game too

    Can't change the lineup much in SEc matches, as the lineup is turned in to the league office in the middle of the week. Therefore you can only take a player out of your lineup and move everyone else up depending on where the injured or replaced player was originally in the lineup. So the only position you can do that at without moving players up is number six.

    It looks like there will be no change in singles lineup today, with a slight tweak in doubles.

    Disappointing start, lose the doubles point despite an easy win on 3 for Crawford and Riffice. Ingidsen and Perez still not clicking at 2

    Little sense of what UF is facing experience wise
    #1 UF sophomore vs Miss St Senior
    #2 UF Soph vs Miss St junior
    #3 UF freshman vs Miss St senior
    #4 UF junior vs Miss St senior
    #5 UF freshman vs Miss St senior
    #6 UF sophomore vs Miss St sophomore

    Incredibly veteran MU roster

    Riffice and Grief both post bagels in first sets, nice for the freshman
    Ingildsen no slow start today 6-2

    Crawford and Vale down a break. Crawford opponent very good
    Andrade will be a key match, he's on verge of going up 5-3

    Greif gets in just ahead of Riffice with identical 0 and 3 scores....super impressive
    Crawford, Andrade and Vale all on serve mid second sets
    Ingildsen score is all screwed up on tracker, no idea what his 3rd set is

    Andrade lets multiple match points get away and now its 5-5
    Watching Ingildsen and he looks very unfocused. Lot of loose points
    Crawford at 4-4, Vale at 4-3
