"I dropped down into tears. It was very difficult and I had to walk away for a couple minutes. I picked up my phone and tried to call him and that was a mistake," she said. "He definitely taught me several things. One thing that stood out to me was to be who I am. If I won't be who I am, I won't be successful. He taught me to be a go-getter, to believe in myself. I was able to pick up the phone and call him any time of the day and he was there, open, and positive. I will miss him for those type of things, not just on the court."
