Torrealba also reached the quarterfinals of the ITF grade 4 junior doubles tournament in Hamburg, but the tournament was ended because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus shutdown.

“Denise is an accomplished player in singles and doubles with very good rankings in junior and open tennis in Germany,” said Brown. “I see Denise making positive impact immediately and I’m confident she will play in our top 3 as a freshman. She has the potential and mind set to continue to improve which so important to have a successful team. I am confident of her work ethic and coachability adding strength to our culture. Academically she is strong and will add to our women’s history of academic excellence.  Maria and I are excited about Denise being a Gov and see her as being a leader and foundation of future teams; she will definitely be a force on our team and in our conference.”
