Is there a moment that stands out to Irvin-Gould as she looks back on her tennis career? 

“Well I think more than anything it means a lot of hard work. When I look back at it, a lot of times it’s chasing a dream. But you know I am proud of what I accomplished there was always someone better than me. So, there is always somebody or someone to chase. As far as things that stand out, winning an NCAA championship with your university (Stanford) is something that is beyond memorable and all very exciting. You know the personal achievements I had along the way in juniors, and professionally, big wins certainly stand out.”

**Thurn can be heard daily on ESPN 99.1 from 3 to 6 p.m. Follow Thurn @jtespn991 and Sam @samtastad on Twitter.
