Head Coach Lele Forood says: "Jessica starts her senior year looking back on having had her usual superb play and a few injury issues last year. Hopefully with a fully healthy campaign coming up, she will re-establish herself as a top-10 singles player and a crafty and effective doubles teammate. Her game is very diverse and like Hilary, she can hit much bigger than her size would indicate. She combines power with touch and almost always goes for the best shot choice available. It should be an entertaining time watching Jessica, a co-captain, lead this young team!"
