    photo Thompson on Roca: Iggy has matured a lot physically after one year. He gained strength and put on muscle to his frame. This hard work paid off this summer when he played Davis Cup for Costa Rica and did exceptionally well. I think as he continues to mature mentally and physically, Iggy has enormous potential. I am certain he will come back to school focused and ready to compete for a spot in this years line up.
