Dave McMahon -- Big win today, what was the key?
Travis Helgeson -- John was serving well, but I only had a couple opportunities so I had to be ready. I made some good decisions today and I was able to hold my serve.
DM -- This match was very close, it could have gone either way...
TH -- Definitely. No one was breaking serve... There was a couple shots I got lucky.
DM -- What do you still need to improve on?
TH -- Everything. Being at Georgia has helped me a lot. I built a lot of confidence last semester.
DM -- You defeated John two years ago during the NCAA title... how much has he improved?
TH -- He is a whole lot better. He is much more consistant and is very tough to beat.
DM -- Texas has a very good tennis program, why did you transfer?
TH -- The situation was not what I am looking for. This is a top notch program which I can excel at.
DM -- Did you think about coming to Georgia when you were originally deciding schools?
TH -- No
DM -- At Texas you had Austin and here at Georgia you have Athens... not too bad of college town choices...
TH -- I definitely got lucky.
