Danielle Wolf, the lone senior on the this year’s Buckeye women’s tennis team, took a few minutes to talk about her time at Ohio State, the 2020 team and more.
Wolf, who ended the shortened 2020 season ranked 62nd nationally in singles, was 13-6 overall during the year, with a 7-2 record in dual matches, playing mostly on court two. An Academic All-Big Ten honoree, she earned her degree in communication this semester.
The team this year was off to an amazing start, reaching as high as No. 2 in the national rankings. What made this year’s team special?
We worked really, really hard. We set some pretty top-tier goals at the beginning of the season. We practiced each day with those goals in mind and every single person on the team wanted to reach them. We wanted to prove to the country what we were capable of and I think we did a great job of that.
What was your “welcome to college tennis” moment”?
I think my welcome to college tennis moment at Ohio State was during my redshirt season when we played Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament final at the University of Illinois. Nothing is quite like the Ohio State – Michigan rivalry. Experiencing that match and (4-0) win reassured me all of the hard work and early mornings I had been putting in would be worth it. And it was. Winning the Big Ten Tournament and regular season title that year was definitely one of my favorite memories as a Buckeye.
