SPOTLIGHT ON Megan Basil (Columbus, Ohio)

Music on your playlist: I listen to mainly rap music before I play to get hype and get me in the mood.

Dream vacation destination: Definitely somewhere with the beach. I like the sun, so probably somewhere in Florida.

Favorite food: Pasta with red sauce and meatballs.

Favorite athlete: Serena Williams.

Future occupation: I want to be a lawyer. My dad is a lawyer and I have always just wanted to be one too.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be: Serena Williams. I would like to ask her about how it is to win all those Grand Slams and just be a really good athlete like she is. I would want to know what it’s like to train so hard every day for so long.

Must-watch TV show: Grey’s Anatomy

Favorite movie: All the Harry Potter movies

If I am not playing tennis, I am … school or hanging out with friends. I like to go skiing, but that is not something I do every day obviously.

SPOTLIGHT ON Drew Van Fossen (Germantown, Wisconsin)

Music on your playlist: I am usually listening to the latest rap hits, especially Lil Baby and Gunna.

Dream vacation destination: Hawaii. Even though I’ve already been there, I would love to go again.

Favorite food: Pizza or wings. Pepperoni pizza is my favorite type.

Favorite athletes: Roger Federer, Chris Paul, Christian Yelich and Tiger Woods.

Future occupation: Something in business. I am looking into the sports management or administration fields and maybe also law. It’s to be determined right now.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be: Babe Ruth. I read about him a lot when I was a kid and some of the stories and things he did were kind of crazy. I feel like he would be a real fun person to be around.

Must-watch TV show: Friends and That 70s Show

Favorite movie: Any of the Avengers movies, and any movie with Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler in it.

If I am not playing tennis, I am … playing another sport like golfing and basketball or playing 2K online with friends.
