What has been your biggest tennis moment so far in your career?
I went to Roland Garros in 2010, and got to talk to players like Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Robin Soderling. That was a huge moment. And also to see all the players play there the first two weeks, especially Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Also now to have been recruited by the University of Iowa to this unreal great team all around.

What are your plans following graduation?
I want to go pro. No doubt.
