Lucy Nutting: is a great athlete with a lot of potential. She hits hard on both her forehand and backhand. She is an aggressive player who has no fear on the court. Lucy has a strong groundstroke game and loves the baseline. Her court awareness, shot variety, consistency in her shots and quick hands are her greatest strengths. We are looking forward to seeing her improvements in both singles and doubles this year. Lucy always gives her best during matches.
