“I was just in Australia for the last four month basically just playing everything down there, all the challenges,” Vukic said. “Was fortunate enough to play in Australian Open qualifying, just been kind of grinding ever since. Was just in LA and kind of stopped by this week to see the boys and now I’m off to Florida. So it’s been good.”

The Illini travel to Michigan this weeknd to take on the Spartans and Wolverines.
