Stanford Head Coach Lele Forood
Opening Statement: "TCU started out very motivated and started off in the doubles play very well. We had to work really hard to get back into some of those matches. Once our team got the doubles point I think our team was pretty inspired to start the singles. And I think that showed."
On your next round opponent Duke: "It's been a while since we've played them but their top two players played at UCLA so we're pretty familiar with them. They've got alot of freshmen in the middle line-up and we've played a couple of them in some individual tournaments this year. I'd have to say we're pretty familiar with them. We're looking forward to playing in the quarterfinals."
On playing at Taube Tennis Center: "It's very comforting. It's nice a hear alot of cheering. It inspires our team to play at home."
