    Yep, only 3 domestic players on roster, none since Zein signed. But if that's what they need to win then so be it. Cause what's happening now isn't Gator tennis. Sleeth is going to have to save the day for this season

    I understand your logic and probably agree with your reasoning. But as Al Davis said, "Just win, baby!". If they will help the gators win, heck there could be from Mars for all I care.

    Any idea why Sleeth is not playing yet?

    I thought she was likely playing pro tourneys early, instead of the Bahamas etc....but that can't be it this deep into the season. I've literally seen nothing referencing her, and haven't seen Coach T have a presser yet. She is still on the roster at least, so hopefully it is something minor she is being held out for.

    "University of Florida" is still listed on her UTR profile. Most players change their UTR profiles if they leave a school. Last match shown on UTR is a pro match in Orlando back in November. WTA website shows the same thing.

    Sleeth still didn’t play today, but a comfortable sweep of georgia state.

    Her MIA status is starting to get a Brooke Austin feel to it.

    eerily similar....no mentions whatsoever. Of course Coach T hasn't really had a real presser all season that I have seen.
    Everything about this season is just bizarre. Men's team has played 13 matches, women have played 5 (Bahamas stuff didn't count). He pretty much had all last season, the summer, and the fall to figure out doubles. They start the season and are awful, and midstream mix up the pairings. Fortunately the SEC doesn't look loaded this year and we should be competitive, but it's hard to feel good about the program right now.

    UF dropped out of the top 50 in the ITA Women's Team rankings this week. Meanwhile, FSU is #2, Miami is #18 and UCF is #25. 10 SEC schools are also ranked in the top 50. UF should return to the rankings once the team plays and wins some more matches but it is hard to ignore what our in-state competitors are doing right now.

    Sobering. IMO UF looks to be barely a top 20 team without Sleeth, and an 8-16 team with her contributing as we expected.....which at this point seems unlikely.
    If UF fails to advance to the round of 16 once again this year there needs to be some serious soul searching, that is just unacceptable.

    An important win tonight at Bama 4-2.
    Lost the doubles (though it was competitive), and came through in singles.
    Bama hadn’t played the best schedule but they were 11-2 and it was a road match, so take the ones we can get right now.
