Quotes from Florida State junior Jason Hood:

On doubles play

“Chris and I played really well together.  His game compliments my game.  He is really quick and has a big serve so he is a great partner to compete with.  I thought doubles went pretty smoothly.  My return was a little shaky but overall I thought we did pretty well.”


On his singles dominance

“I had a lot of adrenaline…it’s my first match so I was really excited. I was hitting really big serves and I was playing really well.  I was happy to be out there competing.”


On the team outlook

“We are really excited for the season.  We are not overconfident…we knew we had to come out and play hard today to beat these guys.  We are really thrilled that the season has finally started.”
