Coach Beck Roghaar’s comments on the Rivera Women’s All-American . . .

“It’s exciting to be heading back to All Americans this year. It’s our goal to be one of the premier programs in college tennis and having players in this event is definitely a benchmark for that.”

Coach Roghaar’s comments on Dokic . . .

“Anja found a lot of success last season in her first semester in college tennis earning a national ranking and beating a top-30 player in the country, and we all feel like she’s capable of even more. We’re working a lot with her right now not only our her game but her mentality, mindset, and the discipline it will take for her to consistently be one of the best players in college tennis. That is not a quick or easy process, but she is starting to really see more about what her true player identity is and making better decisions on court in certain situations. She’s got the physical tools it will take, so taking steps forward in those different areas can really set her apart from a lot of other players out there. Anja wants to compete against the best and she’ll show that out there.”

Anja Dokic’s comments on being selected . . .

“I am super excited to be able to compete in the All-American Championships. I’m grateful to have been given this opportunity for this Fall. It has been really good coming back to college this semester and starting off with eight hour weeks. We’ve talked a lot about of goals for this semester which has helped a lot with my mindset and has really gotten me to think about how I am going to achieve those goals.”

Dokic’s thoughts on the tournament once she is there . . .

“The All-American is a big deal for me but it is not my only tournament. I am preparing really hard for all the tournaments I will be playing, starting in two weeks. However, I have set myself some goals for the All-American. My goal right now is to get through pre-qualies and into qualies (qualification rounds) and once I get into qualies my goal is to get myself through each match and get into the main draw. I will be concentrating on each match as it comes and not think ahead of time, because you cannot win your second match until you win your first and I think that is something that will really help me. I can’t wait to get out on court and start competing again.”
