When did you first gain an interest in tennis?
Amyot: I was seven when I started and my dad got me into it.
Solomon: When I first started playing, I was four years old. I got a real interest when I started playing in tournaments and travelling when I was about 14 or 15.
What is your best tennis moment in life?
Amyot: Mine was winning the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship my freshman year. It had never been done on the team before, so it was a big, big moment.
Solomon: In college when we made the semifinals of the MAAC Tournament. That’s my furthest journey personally, and last year was just the greatest year of tennis for me. I just played my best.
What sport would you play if you couldn’t play tennis?
Amyot: I would play hockey. I started growing up playing it, but I had to give it up because of tennis. So, I would have probably continued to play hockey.
Solomon: I would definitely play soccer. It’s one of my favorite sports and I just love watching it and playing it, and a lot of my friends are on the team so it would be a great time.
Have you ever met a professional tennis player?
Amyot: Yeah, I’ve met a couple of them. I think growing up, my favorite was Andy Roddick, so getting his signature was pretty cool.
Solomon: I’ve met a lot of pros. I go to the U.S. Open every year. It’s just 30 minutes from my house, so I get to walk around and see all of them.
Do you have a favorite professional tennis player?
Amyot: I don’t really have a favorite tennis player to be honest.
Solomon: I would say David Ferrer. He’s just really underrated and is a really small guy. He has no power, he just plays with his heart, I guess.
If you could meet any person in history, who would it be?
Amyot: Ronald Reagan because he was my favorite president.
Solomon: I would meet the old Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon. He was one of the best in politics there, and is just a person to look up to.
What is your favorite spot on campus?
Amyot: I’d probably say the Townhouses.
Solomon: I’d say the Townhouses. I’ve got a lot of friends there, and it’s a good time.
What are your team expectations for this spring?
Amyot: I think the competition has been a lot tougher over the past couple years with Monmouth and Quinnipiac, but I think that we can rise up to the challenge and come out on top.
Solomon: I think we have a very, very talented team from every freshman to every senior, from the number one player to the number six player and the bench. I think as long as the team stays together and stays focused, we’ll have a great season.
