"After a strong first two sets, we struggled a bit in the third, but bounced back again in the fourth. It's good to see that the team can regain their composure and finish solid after a lost set. The highlight of the night was definitely having Sydney Hovland get her 1,000th set assist. We were so excited for her and she's worked very hard for that accomplishment."
