Callen on Pinchbeck: "Kate is a true fighter and an inspiration to all. You can always count on Kate to fight until the end of every match and never give up. She will run down everything and has a tremendous ability to hit penetrating groundstrokes, disguise her shots well and change up the pace with great lobs. Kate has also been a wonderful team leader, taking on the role of co-captain this fall."
