ORLANDO, Fla. – The No. 19 UCF men's tennis team is set for a pair of matches over the next three days as they host Stetson on Sunday and South Alabama on Tuesday.

The Knights have collected two consecutive wins, earning 7-0 sweeps over Florida-foes North Florida and FGCU. Mikhail Sokolovskiy comes into the weekend with a five-match winning streak while Gabriel Decamps and Kento Yamada enter with three consecutive victories.

Stetson brings a 1-2 record with them to the UCF Collegiate Tennis Center at the USTA National Campus. The Hatters' lone win of the season was a 6-1 win over Mercer with losses to Troy and FAU. Antoine Sanchez leads Stetson at the top singles spot with a 2-0 record.

South Alabama fell just short of cracking the top-50 of this week's release of the Oracle/ITA team rankings as they were listed as receiving votes. They've compiled a 5-4 record to this point in the season, with wins over North Florida, Samford, UAB, West Alabama and Nicholls State. While South Alabama doesn't have any ranked singles players, Julien Evrard and Clement Marzol have started the season hot, earning 7-1 marks during the dual match slate. Marzol along with Loic Cloes are ranked in doubles, making up the nation's No. 52 doubles tandem. The Jaguars will take a trip south following their match with the Knights, visiting FAU on Wednesday and FGCU on Thursday.

The USTA National Campus will allow 25 percent of capacity of fans at matches. Masks and social distancing in the stands are required. A daily health waiver must be filled out upon entry to the venue. Spectators will not be allowed in the indoor tennis facility if the match needs to be moved for any reason. More information can be found on the links attached to this preview. Matches are free to attend.
