Ronni Bernstein

"I want student-athletes who are going to come here and compete every day for their teammates, for Michigan and for themselves. I want them to leave the University of Michigan and be successful in whatever they do because they have had the amazing experience of being a student-athlete here. I want each of my student-athletes to get the most out of their time here, whether it is on the tennis court, in the classroom or on campus."
