DIXON ON HODGSON: "A player who is going to play in that 4, 5, or 6 [singles] range. She has improved a lot from last year. She's got a big serve, heavy ground strokes, and she can either hit flat or with spin. She's become quite a good doubles player. Her improvement is both in her mental play and in her footwork. Tanisha is willing to run down every ball."
