Head Coach Lele Forood says: "Lindsay had a development year last season where she played tough matches against the best players in the country and continued to learn how to utilize her game to its fullest. She finished her sophomore year on a high note and will work hard this year to find the consistency in results that her game is capable of bringing at this level. She is very comfortable attacking, which will always be the goal of her play in both singles and doubles. Look for a profound maturity and purpose to Lindsay's game this season and some inspired doubles play to boot."
