No. 5 Florida earns 126th consecutive home victory, beats No. 9 Texas A&M

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Fifth-ranked Florida earned a tough 4-0 against No. 9 Texas A&M in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams held at the Ring Tennis Complex on Friday evening.

The match, which was broadcast on ESPN3 as part of the USTA’s College MatchDay series, began with singles action as part of an experimental format and the Aggies seemed to be in control early.

The Gators did regroup and once the momentum shifted took control of the dual match en route to winning its 126th consecutive home match, while improving to 186-1 all-time at home against SEC opponents.

Senior Alexandra Cercone was the first to finish, posting a 6-3, 6-1 win against Saska Gavrilovska on court three.

Fellow senior Sofie Oyen followed with a 6-1, 6-3 victory against Anna Mamalat on court four and gave Florida a 2-0 lead in the dual match.

Freshman Kourtney Keegan regrouped from a tough first set with a 4-6, 6-1, 6-0 win against Rutuja Bhosale and sophomore Brianna Morgan polished off the Gator team victory with a 7-5, 6-3 spot against Ines Deheza.
