BG: Beating Lehigh in Doubles 8-6 was by far the most memorable of my matches.
NG: Do you think the team has improved in the offseason? How?

NG: What songs would we find you listening to if you saw you at the gym?
BG: Lifestyles by Rich Gang and Rather Be by Clean Bandit.
NG: Who’s the best opponent you have ever faced?
