Conversation with Devin Britton

Special from NBC.com
A year ago, Devin Britton was a rising Blue Chip senior in the Class of 2009.
What a difference a year makes. Britton decided to enroll early at Ole Miss in January, and he broke through in Texas to win the NCAA Division I singles title. More recently, Britton made the decision to turn pro.
Harry Cicma of NBC News caught up with Britton to reflect on his recent past - and to look forward to the U.S. Open.
Questions and Answers Harry Cicma (HC): What led to your decision to finally choose the ATP Tour?
Devin Britton (DB): I have always wanted to become a professional tennis player and this was a great opportunity for me to go after it following my winning the NCAA title. I felt like I did what I had to do in school and it was time to make the move.
HC: Of all the colleges in the country, what led to your decision to attend Ole Miss?
DB: I am originally from Jackson, Mississippi, so I am familiar with the school. They always seemed to be a Top 10 school in tennis, and for the past five or so years have been Top 5. They have a great coaching staff and great facilities. Also, the SEC is a great conference for sports in general and I wanted to stay in the south - so it all made sense and worked out.
