    No. 9 Florida makes quick work of South Alabama
    By Kelly Shipp UF floridagators.com

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The ninth-ranked Florida men's tennis team improved to 2-0 on the season with their 4-0 win over South Alabama in the opening round of Intercollegiate Tennis Association Kick-Off Weekend tournament Saturday.
    The Gators wasted no time against South Alabama as they won the doubles point in less than a half-hour. At No. 3 doubles, Oliver Crawford and Chase Perez-Blanco sped through their match with a 6-0 victory in just 18 minutes. A mere seven minutes later the Gators secured the doubles point at No. 1 doubles when the pair of Alfredo Perez and Johannes Ingildsen won 6-1.

    Quoting Coach Shelton
    On the depth of the team

    "When other teams come in here to play, or when we go on the road we hope other teams realize that there are no holes in our lineup. We have the type of depth where we can move guys around in the lineup and give guys different opportunities at different positions. We've got guys that haven't even played yet that are more than capable of coming in and competing. It feels great to have that type of depth and I certainly don't take it for granted because I haven't had this type of depth in previous years."
