From The Sidelines
"Overall, I thought we competed really well today, we once again came into the match playing shorthanded, but we came out with energy and enthusiasm despite that. Isabella and Ola were playing really well at No. 1 doubles before their match got suspended, and I think with a little more time we could have gotten that win. We also had some good performances throughout the top half of the singles lineup, but we just weren't able to pull out a quick point to keep the match going." – Associate Head Coach Frank Polito
