Coach Anger on Manthou:
"I think college is going to be great for Max. He grew up here in the Northwest, and was just one of the top players from day one. Now in college, our Pac-10 level of tennis is such a step up, it's going to be great for him, as he's able to play year-round against tougher competition. Initially, I think that step up is a bit of a shock, but I think he's a great competitor, good athlete, he's eager and learns, so he's going to be doing well for us."
