Friday March 14, 2014Gators Sweep Tennessee in Knoxville

Knoxville, TN

Sofie Oyen won her 95th career doubles match, as well as her 97th singles match.

The third-ranked Gators earned a 7-0 victory against Tennessee at the Goodfriend Tennis Center in Knoxville on Friday.

 

The match was moved indoors due to the severe windy conditions but the change of venue didn’t alter the Gator’s focus, as the squad won the doubles point for the 10th time this season.

 

After securing the first team point of the dual match, Florida kept its focus on the singles courts, where all six matches were played to completion and all six were straight-set Gator victories.

 

Freshman Kourtney Keegan, senior Olivia Janowicz and senior Sofie Oyen helped the secure the win and Brianna Morgan, Belinda Woolcock and Alexandra Cercone followed to complete Florida’s sweep.

·         The Gators won the doubles point for the 10th time this season.

·         Senior Sofie Oyen paired with freshman Belinda Woolcock for the clinching doubles-point victory.

·         The win was Oyen’s 95th career doubles victory.

Quoting UF Head Coach Roland Thornqvist

On freshman Kourtney Keegan:

·         “She was a highlight for us, without a doubt. From the first point in doubles you could see that she was taking command playing indoors. I was really happy to see that she followed through and played just as aggressively. That’s key for her, to stay on the offense. She’s very, very powerful.”

 

Other keys to the win:

·         “Olivia (Janowicz) did a fantastic job and was the second play off the court. I told the team after the match that I thought we did a great job at the end of sets. The sets that went to 4-all, I thought we were excellent in playing smart. We put the ball where it needed to be in our opponent’s weaknesses and that was a big part in contributing to us not losing a set.”
