Dave McMahon -- Everything has worked well for you this season so far?

Jamie Hunt -- I have been waiting to play for a long time. I am really excited how these first two dual matches have gone. I am so excited about this season.

DM -- You and your doubles partner Nate Schnugg have a history together...

JH -- We were very successful together in juniors. We competed a lot together and won a lot. We are pretty confident when we play together.

DM -- On Sunday you played at #6, against Clemson you played at #4, you have to be pleased at that?

JH -- This is an incredible team. Georgia is so deep, but we want everyone a chance to play and play against good competition.
