Friday October 18, 2013WTennis: Gators Post Stunning 17-0 Record at USTA/ITA Southeast Regionals

Athens, GA

Brianna Morgan lost just 2 games in 2 singles matches during a great day of action for the Gators.

All seven Gators combined for an incredible 17-0 singles and doubles record on the first day of play at the 2013 USTA/ITA Southeast Regional Championships at Georgia’s Dan Magill Tennis Complex on Friday.

 

The Gator septet won two rounds of singles matches in the 64-player draw, while a trio of doubles tandems won first-round action in the 32-team draw.

 

Not one of the 14 singles matches went to three sets and the most games in a set a Gator surrendered was four, doing so just once.

 

Sofie Oyen is the No. 2 overall seed, while Alexandra Cercone is the No. 4 seed, Brianna Morgan is No. 9, Olivia Janowicz is No. 12, Belinda Woolcock is No. 15 and Kourtney Keegan is No. 16. While Stefani Stojic didn’t receive one of the top-16 seeds, the Gator freshman collected a win against the nation’s No. 67-ranked player, who retired early in the first-round match.

 

In the 32-team doubles event, Morgan and Oyen are seeded No. 6, while Keegan and Woolcock are No. 7. Also competing is the Gator tandem of Janowicz and Stojic.
