Nick Gurzynski: What’s your favorite vacation spot?

Brandon Goldstein: Boca Raton.

NG: Favorite Pre-Match Meal?

BG: Turkey Sandwich and Matzah Ball Soup.

NG: Which match are you most looking forward to playing?

BG: Loyola. I lost a close match against them last year. It was 4-3 and I want redemption.

NG: Which schools look like the biggest threats this year?

BG: Colgate and Loyola will be our biggest competition this season.

NG: What are some goals you have as team captain for the team this year?

BG: As a team, our goal is to get a better seed going into the Patriot League tournament. Across the conference, many teams lost talented upperclassmen to graduation. This will better our chances of success in the tournament.

NG: What did you work on this summer to improve your game?

BG: I tweaked my serve slightly, which allows me to have more velocity as well as more movement.

NG: What is your most memorable match during your career at Lafayette?

BG: Beating Lehigh in Doubles 8-6 was by far the most memorable of my matches.

NG: Do you think the team has improved in the offseason? How?

BG: No one graduated which is huge. We also have a really strong freshman class and can only improve from last year.

NG: What songs would we find you listening to if you saw you at the gym?

BG: Lifestyles by Rich Gang and Rather Be by Clean Bandit.

NG: Who’s the best opponent you have ever faced?

BG: Noah Rubin of Wake Forest, who is currently playing in the US Open at age 18.
