Gators best Canes…again.

Filed under: Uncategorized — tranquilo1212 @ 7:34 pm

The Florida Gators men’s tennis team came to Coral Gables last season and lost to the Miami Hurricanes 4-3. Although they beat UM in Gainesville that same postseason, eliminating them from the playoffs, UF knew that pride and their ranking were on the line in Sunday’s match in Gainesville. The 11th ranked Gators prevailed, 5-2, with David Simon and Carl Sundberg picking up singles victories for the 24th ranked Hurricanes. Miami’s top doubles pairing of Daniel Vallverdu and Sundberg, in their first match together this season, fell to the Gators pairing of Joey Burkhardt and Antoine Bennetau, 8-2. The Canes fell to 4-3 on the season and will be on the road again next weekend, at Tallahassee to face ACC and Sunshine State rival Florida State, ranked 16th in the nation.
