The answer to this question has been obvious to UGA fans for a good while now, but it is nice to see someone to see it without red and black glasses on.
Of course Auburn and Florida would want to argue with these results, as would Texas. They would all be wrong in our eyes!

ATHENS, Ga. — Alex Diaz, a freshman on the Georgia men’s tennis team this past season, was a star for Puerto Rico at the 2017 Davis Cup regional competition, which was played at the Carrasco Lawn Tennis Club in Montevideo, Uruguay.
Competing in Americas Group III, Diaz boasted a perfect 4-0 record at the No. 1 singles position and 2-0 doubles mark over the six-day period to help the Puerto Ricans advance to Group II in 2018. In all, Puerto Rico went 4-0 as a team in the round-robin format, before taking down Costa Rica, 2-1, in the promotional playoff.
“Playing for Puerto Rico in that situation was such a great experience, especially since I am playing other countries against players I have never heard or seen play,” Diaz said. “When you are in an event like this, you learn how to find another player’s weakness and use that to win because every single player is different, so it was just a great learning experience overall.”
