What has been your biggest tennis moment so far in your career?
"Winning nationals in doubles. That feeling of winning was just unbeatable. Also, when we beat Minnesota the spring of 2014. I was obviously thrilled about the win myself, but also so happy for the older guys and the program itself."
What are your plans following graduation?
"My plans are to either get an MBA back home or start working. If that will be in Sweden or in the U.S., I'm not sure, I'll see what feels right."
