    And getting smoked early.
    Lost the doubles point, and four matches in progress they lost the first set in three of them.

    I think you and I are the only ones following the match. I've been posting on the other thread, but I'll join you over here. The second sets are going a bit better, fortunately.

    A loss tonight certainly wouldn’t be something to panic about, but hope they show some fight regardless of the outcome.

    Very true. Riffice is about to lose at #1 singles, unless he mounts a huge comeback. That will be very hard to overcome.

    Down 3-0 now. This will take a miracle.

    Quick update--Down 3-1 with Andrade ahead in his third set 4-0. We ain't dead yet.

    Edit--The scoreboard just took away our win at #3 and reversed the second set. So the overall score is back to 3-0. I have no idea what's going on and I'm going to bed.

    3-3.
    Comes down to 6 singles.
    Tough ask though, lost the first set tie break.

    Lost 4-3.
    Good fight to come back, but gotta understand that they’re going to get everyone’s best shot. Helpfully a good lesson early.

    Yep, hate losing, but may be good to get an early reality check. TCU is very good and playing on their home court. Doubles scores were disappointing, but long way to go.

    If you look at the men's national rankings behind their names, Riffice doesn't appear to be ranked while Shelton is number two. Does anybody have a link to some national ranking system?

    Tough loss Gators but an early loss last year lead to great things.
