Senior Flo Diep

On his experience in the NCAA Singles Championship

It was a good way to finish my college career. I felt good on the court and I fought in all of my matches and most importantly, I had fun.

 

On his years as a Gator

It was exciting to play for Florida. It was great to play with a team and it was a great experience for me and Ive improved as a person and as a player. It was great for me.

 

Head Coach Bryan Shelton

On Flos season overall and his growth as a player

Were certainly proud of him, but weve been proud all year long. Hes the guy that does the right things the right way. Im glad he could work so hard and finish it this way, with so much success at the end. Its nice to see him gaining that and gaining confidence moving into his next chapter of life. Weve certainly gained from having him. Hes been a great model for our young players and hes set a great example for the future of this program. Hell be missed, but well be following his professional progress in his next chapter.

 

It was a heck of a year for us. Were excited about the direction of this program.
