Hyams started the interview citing "video review" of a call overturning an apparent win, and having to win the tournament twice-- a nice catchy intro-- but didn't even know there's no "video review" in college tennis, and had to ask Woodruff twice to confirm it. What a yokel.

Then, didn't even give a picture of what happened, nor give credit to the players who did it.

No mention of:
- Florida was ranked #1 nationally going into the match
- The debacle of the chair ump making three bad calls in the 3rd set tiebreaker, overturning an apparent win on a bad call, causing #4 Weideman to lose, intentionally or not
- Prata clinching the championship after all the chaos of the at 5-5 in the 3rd winning the next two games
- SEC Freshman OTY: Johannes Monday

No interesting questions to Woodruff like:
- Could you have had the chair ump on Court 4 removed after the first over-rule?
- Did you talk to the SEC office about that chair ump?
- What did you say to Prata to help him win the clinching match after having thought you'd won?

Continued on asking dumb questions: "Of your four ranked singles players, which one is surprising he's ranked"? What?... like he doesn't deserve it?

My gosh, that was complete garbage for Knoxville's "premier" sports talk show.

Sounds par for the course.
