  • On her relationship with partner Taryn Kloth"She’s like my sister. I don’t have a sister, and she’s kinda taken that role. We genuinely enjoy spending time together. We just like having fun. So when you have that off the court, it’s just kind of perfect on the court. It works. We definitely trust each other."
