#TeamUSA players reflect on their best year ever

2015 was an excellent year for a number of up-and-coming American players, including many who have flown a bit under the radar. At this year's Champaign Challenger, I asked several of them to reflect on their year, including their high points from the year and the one match they wish they'd won.

The interviewees were:

  • Austin Krajicek, who won the Leon, Mexico Challenger and reached a career high of #94 this year, 
  • Mitchell Krueger, who reached the Lexington Challenger semis, won a Futures, and reached a high of #225,
  • Daniel Nguyen, who reached the Winnetka Challenger final, won two Futures, and entered the Top 200,
  • Eric Quigley, who reached three Futures finals and jumped over 200 spots in the rankings, breaking into the top 300, and
  • Sekou Bangoura, who reached the Binghamton Challenger semis and vaulted nearly 250 spots this year into the Top 350 for the first time.
Thanks so much to all the participants, especially Eric Quigley, who left town before I could get him on camera, so he taped his own.
