From The Sidelines
"This was a good team win today, I thought we were able to take care of business throughout doubles and singles, and pick up a solid win to continue our momentum. It was good to see Blanche in the doubles lineup, her and Isabella played well together at the top of the lineup for us picking up a quality win. I'm happy to see Kate pick up win #20, it's always impressive when you record a 20-win season, she just brings her lunch pail every day to work on the courts. Siân battled for a win at the No. 3 spot, coming back after losing the first set and then dominating the rest of the way. Now it's time to look forward to Oakland and prepare for a quick turnaround to get back to league play." – Head Coach Frank Polito
