Tuesday June 2, 2009W-Tennis Posts Highest Postseason Attendance in Nation

Gainesville, Fla.

The members of the University of Florida women’s tennis team said throughout the 2008-09 season that they appreciated the fan support they received during the year. Not only did Gator fans cheer the team on to a perfect 13-0 home record this year, they came out and showed their support when it matter the most.

 

In the ITA Postseason Attendance Race, Florida posted the highest overall total attendance (812 fans) and the highest overall average (406 per match) than any other women's program that hosted a 2009 NCAA Regional site. The 490 fans who attended the NCAA First Round match against College of Charleston was the second-highest individually attended postseason match, while the 322 fans who attended the May 10th NCAA Second Round battle against Florida State ranked third among all women's programs in 2009.

 

“I’ve always said that Gator fans are the best fans in the country and they showed that throughout the season and especially during the NCAA Tournament matches we hosted this year,” UF head coach Roland Thornqvist said. “Our players love the experience of playing at Linder Stadium at the Ring Tennis Complex because of the tremendous support they receive every match and their results are a reflection of that.”
