A New Start
Dave McMahon -- Good way to start the season...
Matic Omerzel -- Definitely, I was a little nervous out there until I got my rhythm back, but after I got to a quick start I started to feel good.
DM -- How much have you improved since you first got here?
MO -- I developed a lot. Coach Diaz has helped me a lot. I am a lot smarter. When I was a freshman I would just smack the ball. I am also a lot stronger now.
DM -- Last year you were the SEC Indoors Champion in doubles with Luis Flores, now you have a new doubles partner, Travis Helgeson, is it hard to play with someone new?
MO -- We played together in the fall. We have good chemistry. Last year I played with Luis who was left-handed, this year I play with Travis who is left-handed. We have practiced a lot together who know where each of us is going to be.
DM -- What worked so well for you in singles?
MO -- I was consistant. I didn't miss a lot. I put a lot of pressure on my opponent.
DM -- What do you still need to work on?
MO -- My first serve percentage, but overall my volleys. I also feel I need to come to the net more.
DM -- You are very aware on how the season ended last year, especially since you are a senior and this is your last year, do you use last year as motivation for this year?
MO -- I was the player who lost the last match. I felt so bad I did not grab a racket for 2 months after that match. I didn't want to think about tennis. But now it is a new season and a new start.
Overall this season, Matic is currently ranked #65 in the nation.
He is 11-4 this season in singles and 9-2 in doubles matches when teammed with Travis Helgeson.
