    photo         Thompson on Diankov: "Angel will be a key player for us this year and he is a senior with great skills and experience. He knows what it takes to win and has proven it for the past two years. I expect his senior year will be his best yet as he has improved his serve and has been playing with a lot more confidence. If Angel stays injury free, he should have a very successful season."
