Personal: Daughter of Janice and Larry.

Coach Lele Forood says: "Lauren showed some strong improvement in her tennis last season having good success playing the No. 2 spot. Her heavy groundstrokes help her attacking game and, that base along with a strong serve, should allow her to have a dominant year again not only in singles but in doubles with Erin Burdette with whom she was ranked No. 1 in the country for most of last year."
