Hailey Borja


Q. Hailey, you put up quite a fight out there. You were 2-down through 3; then you tied it up on 6; then back to 1-down on 7; tied up on 13; you made an incredible up and down on 16.

Could you just describe the kind of fight that you put out there in this match?

HAILEY BORJA: Yeah, I mean, it's not over until it's over, so I just kept on grinding and kept on trusting my game and all the practice and preparation for the tournament.

So, again, just kept grinding.

Q. How much confidence does this give you going into the season at Michigan playing so well in this championship?

HAILEY BORJA: Yeah, definitely a lot. I kind of want to believe that was a little bit of the underdog here, so some really good players out here. Just gave me some more confidence that I can compete with everyone.

Q. You've impressed a lot of people. Great playing and good luck in the season.

HAILEY BORJA: Thank you.
