"I thought [Maddy] played her best tennis yesterday, but today she stepped it up even more," said her coach, Dan Hutner. "In the quarterfinal, she went into the second set with a huge lead, then the girl started to come back. The thing I was most impressed with was her mental strength and fighting out that last game to stop the comeback."

"She is going up against an incredible player," Hutner said of Pagnucco's opponent. "[Maddy] is relaxed because she doesn't feel the pressure because she doesn't have to. She feels she can go in and play her best tennis and see where she ends up. She is more excited just to be playing at this level than trying to win a title."
