Andrade close it out, need one more
Ingildsen has raised his game....wish he played more consistently because when crisp he is really good
Vale doesn't look impressive to me today
Vale loses 2nd set....not sharp at all IMO
MSU guy at 4 double faults Ingildsen to match point, then dumps an easy volley into the net for match.....great win, and much needed
Crawford about to go down and Vale scuffling in his match
Borges takes out Crawford easily in tiebreak. Crawford has lost more tiebreaks in his career than anybody I can remember
Vale must have heard me....MUCH better energy and 4 straight games to get to 4-1. Also helps that the MSU kid is making a lot of unforced errors, framed a ton of balls
MSU kid just flailing now, he's hitting routine groundstrokes 10 feet long. 5-1 now
Vale with a nice 3rd ,6-1. MSU kid had the wheels come off
If you want to be an SEC champion, you have to go through the champions. That is what Florida did this afternoon against MSU at home. MSU is an ultra veteran squad that has been very tough over the past three years. Florida reached a plateau today it has been unable to attain in the recent past. After a win like this, the details that still need to be worked out can be worked on next week. This squad has earned the right to celebrate for 24 hours! Then it's back to work, because Wake Forest rolls into Gainesville on Wednesday and next weekend's road trip starts in Athens and finishes in Knoxville. BUT for right now GO GATOR MEN"S TENNIS. Congratulations on this break through win!
big week wrapped up, and a big week coming up
Wake of course is really really good, UGA a little down but always tough at home, and UT a solid squad. All good tests

Strong Singles Play Pushes No. 9 Gators Past No. 10 Mississippi State
Florida earns hard-fought conference win over Bulldogs at home
Despite dropping the doubles point, Florida surged back behind powerful singles performances to defeat the Bulldogs 5-2, earning its third conference win of the season, ninth overall.
No. 10 Mississippi State took the doubles point with wins at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions. The Bulldogs boast two top-10 doubles pairs, who currently play No. 1 and No. 2. Oliver Crawford and Sam Riffice improved to a team-best 7-1 after their win on court 3.
No. 9 Florida didn't take long to bounce back though. The Gators took five of the six first sets and didn't let up heading into the second.
