"Alberto Bautista is a battler. He has won a lot of big matches the past couple of years, both in singles and in doubles. Alberto has a big forehand and lightning quickness around the court with his all-court style of play. He does a great job of finishing around the net and he has some of the best volleys on our team. A fierce competitor who hates to lose, Alberto has been one of the toughest outs in our lineup the last couple of years. What I love most about Alberto is he never gets scared out there and he thinks he can beat anyone on any given day and that is a great approach. He is a pressure player that continues to go for his shots no matter what." - Aggie Head Coach Steve Denton
