GAINESVILLE, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Facing the No. 1-ranked school in the nation, the UCF women's tennis team dropped a 7-0 decision to Florida Wednesday in Gainesville. The Knights fell to 1-4 on the year while the Gators stretched their record to 2-0.

Florida opened a 1-0 lead by sweeping all three doubles matches against UCF. UF used two doubles tandems which were both ranked in the top-15 in the country to help grab the first point of the day.

The Knights then faced five Gators who were ranked in the top-50 in Division I when singles play began. At the No. 2 position, Alexis Rodriguez battled No. 3 Allie Will in a tough first set, as did Jenna Doerfler who took on No. 4 Joanna Mather at the No. 3 spot. However both UF players were able to hold on, and eventually grab the second set as well en route to the home team's victory.

UCF opens its home dual-match schedule Friday with a 2 p.m. showdown against East Carolina. Admission is free to the UCF Tennis Complex.
