Q: What are you majoring in?
A: "Probably Economics."

Q: What has been your best win?
A: "My best win. I do not know. They are all pretty good. It is just hard to remember. I always seemed to come up short in the last year. The recent ones have not been too good."

Q: You can't think of anything?
A: "No, not really because I would be going back a long time. Recently I have gotten close on a number of people, but just never really pushed over the top. In college it feels a little better."

Q: What tournament did you have the most fun at?
A: "French Open. The best by far. The best venue. Just being there was fantastic. Being able to play on those courts is like a dream."

Q: Is there a tournament you haven't been to yet that you're looking forward to?
A: "Wimbledon."

Q: Where do you go from here -- for the school break?
A: "I'm training a little bit and trying to play a couple of professional tournaments. Maybe a Future or two."

Q: Does anyone else in your family play tennis?
A: "Everybody else plays tennis. My sister (Lauren) plays at the University of Virginia and my mom and dad play for fun."

Q: At what age did you start playing tennis?
A: "Eight."

Q: Was that your first tournament or when you first started playing?
A: "I think it was about the same time. I first started playing and picked it up very quickly. I think I played my first tournament at nine."
