Gainesville, Fla.

Sofie Oyen is 9-0 in dual match singles action this season.

The second-ranked University of Florida womenís tennis team plays host to 22nd-ranked Vanderbilt at Linder Stadium at Ring Tennis Complex on Friday beginning at 5 p.m.

 

Admission is free and the first 100 fan receive a Florida Tennis Bucket Hat.

 

The Gators (8-1, 2-0 SEC) have won a program-record 99 consecutive home matches and is the longest active home win streak of any NCAA Division I womenís sports program. The Stanford womenís basketball team has won 79 straight home games.

 

The match is the Gatorís Southeastern Conference home opener and Florida aims to extend its impressive home record against league foes, which stands at 173-1 all-time entering Fridayís contest.

 

The Gators hold a 42-2 all-time record against Vanderbilt, including an 18-0 mark in matches played in Gainesville. The teams met twice last season, with Florida earning the 7-0 sweep in Nashville during the regular season before posting a 4-0 win in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament. The last time the Commodores defeated Florida was a 4-3 decision on March 11, 2005 in Nashville. Since that setback, the Gators have won 12 consecutive matches against Vanderbilt.

 

Florida is coming off a strong week when it swept Florida State and No. 5 Tennessee, before earning a thrilling 4-3 victory at No. 4 Georgia in the SEC opening weekend.

 

Florida has won 27 consecutive regular-season SEC matches, which includes a perfect 11-0 record in 2009-10 and 2010-11, as well as the final three of the 2008-09 campaign.
