Jan. 15, 2010


Women's Tennis
My favorite part of being an ACC athlete is... Before every match (without fail) I always... When I'm not playing tennis I like to... Something most people don't know about me is... If I found $100, I would...

Knowing that Florida State is in the strongest conference in the United States. That means whoever wins the ACC tournament has a good chance at winning the NCAA's. Have a snack. Play a computer game called World of Warcraft (AKA WOW). That I am an Aunt for the very first time. Put it towards my car payments.

The tough competition and great teams competing against each other. Listen to music. Sleep, eat, go to the movies. I love to go out to eat. Help my family and bring them to some of the matches.

NC State
Senior

The competitive experience we get from competing against great athletic colleges. Listen to loud techno music to get pumped up. Relax and stay ahead in school work. Is that my parents are Serbian, I was born in Cyprus and I moved to Spain with my family when I was 4 and have lived there ever since. Save it for gas because I love road trips.

Junior

Being able to play tennis at a Division I level, but still getting a great education. Listen to my iPod. Travel. During the year I don't have a lot of free time because of practice, training and matches, so over the summer I try to plan fun trips to different places. That I have British and Canadian passports. Go out for a really nice meal because I'm obsessed with food.

Sophomore

Being able to motivate beginning tennis players. Call my sisters and listen to my iPod. Dance. Whether I am good or not is debatable, but it's a lot of fun. My senior year of high school I competed in a poetry recitation contest (and won!). Donate it to the American Cancer Society.
