    Nicolas has been a solid performer for three straight years and I think he is playing better than ever in his senior year. He has the skills to be one of our best players and will be called on in both singles and doubles to help us achieve our team goals. He has some of the best volleys in college tennis which, in combination with good movement and solid groundstrokes, make him hard to play against. In addition, Nicolas knows he will also see lots of opportunities to play nationally ranked opponents and perhaps finish his career with a high national ranking.
