The Southeastern Conference coaches selected three members of the UF men's tennis team to the league's postseason awards. Alfredo Perez and Elliott Orkin were both named to the All-SEC first team, while Johannes Ingildsen was added to the All-Freshman team.

This is Perez's third conference honor after being named to both the second team All-SEC in 2016, while it is Orkin's fourth SEC honor in the same number of years, and his second appearance on the first team.

Florida (17-9) opens NCAA tourney play at home May 12 against FGCU (10-12).
