"Alexey has a great international pedigree. He was a top five world junior and has a lot of experience at the highest level of competition. He knows how to play points well, knows how to compete and is going to make our team so much better in both singles and doubles. He has a different style of game which gives us a lot of variation on our team. We will have some guys that are attackers and some that are defenders. He is really going to help us in that regard, because he allows us to have some flexibility in how he plays and how he can vary his style. Alexey is a real savvy tennis player and is going to be a major contributor to the success of this program during his time in Aggieland." - Texas A&M Head Coach Steve Denton
