She taps her racquet on top of the net when she's switching sides in between points and she only allows herself to walk down certain hallways on her way to home matches.

She had narrowed her choices down to NU or Duke, and that day the decision just came to her. Another reason Duffy chose to attend Northwestern was the close proximity to her paternal grandparents.
