ORLANDO, Fla. – After splitting their weekend decisions against a pair of Power 6 opponents, the No. 21 UCF men's tennis team is set for another tilt with an SEC team as it hosts No. 37 Arkansas on Wednesday at 5 p.m. at the UCF Collegiate Tennis Center at the USTA National Campus.

Gabriel Decamps, Kento Yamada and Mikhail Sokolovskiy have been dominating in singles, stringing together some impressive winning streaks. After losing the first match of the season, Sokolovskiy has collected nine straight victories and is a perfect 8-0 at the No. 6 spot in singles. Decamps has been victorious in eight straight matches and is 10-1 this year. Two wins in that eight-match streak have been over top-10 singles players, helping him to a 4-1 mark against ranked opponents in 2021. Yamada enters the match with a perfect record of 8-0, fresh off a win at No. 4 singles against No. 17 Georgia.

Arkansas enters the mid-week matchup with a record of 8-6 but has played some tough opponents. They have losses to No. 15 Oklahoma State and No. 20 Kentucky but are coming off a 4-3 win over No. 12 Texas A&M. The Razorbacks have one singles player ranked which is Alex Reco who sits at No. 72.

This is just the third time the Black and Gold will face Arkansas in program history. UCF won the first matchup over the Razorbacks by a count of 5-2 and fell in their following meeting by a count of 4-3 to open the 2019 season.

New computerized team, singles and doubles rankings are expected to be released prior to the match on Wednesday evening.
