Brandi has opened the dual match season with a 4-0 singles record, all of which have been won in straight sets. This past weekend, he played a key role in moving the Gators to 4-0 as a team for the second straight season and the sixth time in the past seven years by picking up a pair of singles wins on court three. He began the weekend by defeating Miami's John Hoyes (6-3, 6-2) and helped the Gators to their eighth consecutive victory over Florida State on Sunday with a 6-3, 6-4 win over 91st-ranked Jeff Groslimond.
Brandi also teamed with Mirzadeh at the top of the doubles lineup on Friday to defeat Miami's Josh Cohen and Tim Krebs in 47 minutes, 8-3.
This Saturday, Brandi and the rest of the Gator squad will travel to Champaign, Ill., to take on their toughest opponent to date as UF faces fifth-ranked Illinois at 6 p.m. Florida enters the Atkins Tennis Center looking to break the Illini's 36-match home win streak.
