Thompson on Abbas: "Adel will be an important part of this year's success. Last season, he worked very hard to put himself in the right position to be a starter and to win key matches for us against Brown and Notre Dame. This year Adel will need to continue to work hard and stay injury free to finish his tennis career on a positive note. He is extremely talented and I believe he has great potential to be very successful this year."
