Duke Head coach Jamie Ashworth:
"I can't say how proud I am of them, especially after the start we got off to in doubles. We played horrible in doubles, just fundamental stuff that we've worked so much on. We didn't do a very good job with serves and returns. We gave them a lot of free points in doubles, but we did a great job in singles."
"I knew that [Georgia Tech] would come out and be fired up and it would be a much closer match than we had four weeks ago with them. It feels really good though. We haven't won a match like that in a long time."
Georgia Tech Head coach Bryan Shelton:
"I am very proud of our team. I thought we got better as the season went along, played some of our best tennis here at the NCAA Tournament last weekend and today. I think the future looks bright."
