Florida vs Baylor Preview
The Gators swept the Texas Longhorns 4-0 on Friday afternoon to secure the program’s first trip to a national title match. They’d reached the semifinals just three times heading into the tournament, in 2000, 2005, and 2019
“It’s special. I think we have a really special team,” Florida head coach Bryan Shelton said, according to gatorsports.com. “Everyone has worked so hard to put us in this position.
“I felt like on the big points, we were able to keep our composure and see the ball and make the plays we needed to make. And I think getting that doubles point gave us a lot of confidence as well. And then going into the singles, which has been our strength all season long, especially with our depth, I think our whole team felt like we had a good chance to really secure a win tonight.”
After Florida claimed the doubles point with victories from Sam Riffice/Ben Shelton (6-4) and Will Grant/Brian Berdusco (6-2), singles wins from Shelton (6-3, 6-0), Blaise Bicknell (6-1, 7-5), and Andy Andrade (6-3, 7-5) sealed things.
Andrade improved to 25-7 in singles matches with his match-clinching triumph.
“Right now I’m playing with a lot of confidence,” Andrade said, according to the Florida’s athletics department website. “I have so much trust in our guys. It feels great. But it’s not done for us yet. We know what it’s going to take for us to win. We can be happy right now and celebrate a little bit, but tomorrow morning is a new day, and we’re going to play for the biggest win of our lives.”
Baylor needed a comeback against the Tennessee Volunteers in the semifinals to advance to the program’s first national title match since 2005. The Bears won one of the three doubles matches to drop the matchup’s first point, then lost the first singles match to conclude. But consecutive Bears victories from Sven Lah (6-0, 6-3), Spencer Furman (6-3, 6-2), Nick Stachowiak (1-6, 6-2, 6-4), and Matias Soto (7-6 (3), 4-6, 7-5) delivered a 4-2 win.
The Bears claimed their lone national title in 2004.
“I’m a little bit sad that we only get to play one more match,” Baylor head coach Michael Woodson said, according to the school’s athletics site. “I haven’t really thought much about ‘Oh, if we lose today then we don’t get another match.’ I was hoping we would get this opportunity so we can sit down together and everybody knows, this is it. We’re going to empty the tank and enjoy one last ride together. No, it hasn’t really hit me and it is sad to think about.”
