Sofie Oyen gets 100th career win in singles, No. 4 Florida cruises to 4-0 win
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida needed just 86 minutes to stage a 4-0 victory against Arkansas and it was senior Sofie Oyen who provided the clinching singles win at Linder Stadium at Ring Tennis Complex on Friday afternoon, when she earned her 100th career singles victory.
With rain in the forecast for the Gainesville area later in the day, the match was moved to a 2:40 p.m. start time and the decision was made to play singles matches first with the Perry Indoor Facility featuring three courts.
The Gators jumped out early on the majority of the singles courts, with freshman Kourtney Keegan needing just 21 minutes to win her first set and eventually 49 total minutes to produce a 6-1, 6-1 win on court No. 5 that gave Florida a quick 1-0 lead.
Florida followed with straight-set singles victories from seniors Olivia Janowicz, Alexandra Cercone and Oyen, as the Gators shook off Sunday’s setback at Alabama.
Oyen clinched the dual match win 6-4, 6-2, and became the 27th Gator to win 100 career singles matches and joins fellow seniors Janowicz and Cercone in the century milestone club.
