"Vicky is probably as tough a competitor as we've had. She had a great sophomore year, as well, and will have to step up in doubles this year, but she's worked at it and everything should start coming together for her as well as it has in singles. She's hoping to jump up and compete a little higher nationally than she even did last year (in singles), and she's got the tools to do it."
