This season's stats: Loeb is 4-5 this season, but has won her last four matches at the No. 3 singles position.

What college or professional athlete inspires you and why?

Venus Williams. She's relentless. She's very underrated, and she's really fun to watch — no matter if she looks miserable or not. I've been told I look miserable when I play, too, but I promise I'm having fun.

What is one of your most memorable moments as an athlete?

Going to state with my team for track. I ran with my 4x200 meter relay team. We were all really good friends, and it created a special bond between us.

What is your favorite activity/hobby outside of sports and why?

I like traveling. I like to see new things and get out of my comfort zone a little bit. I like trying things that I haven't tried before and meeting new people that you wouldn't see every day.

What is your dream job and why?


A dream job would be an architect. I like math and creating houses, new buildings and different kinds of things like that. It appeals to me because I feel like it'd be cool to create and build something and see it come to life.

Describe your dream vacation.

I've been on my dream vacation, but it's on the Amalfi Coast, probably on a boat somewhere. The water was really blue and it was right on the Mediterranean Sea and everything was so different. You could travel anywhere from that point.
