2009-10 TEAM CAPTAIN
DIXON ON LECLUYSE: "Maude Lecluyse is one of the workhorses of the team - shows up, works hard, practices hard. Maude is an excellent doubles player. She's had very, very good results over the years, particularly in doubles. She's got a big forehand and a big serve. She's moving better around the court. Maude is one of the most competitive athletes that I've ever seen. She always plays with passion."
