When you see Larry or Jane Mozer on the street, ask about Olivia and you will see the biggest smiles break out and the buttons start poppin.’ Olivia Hauger is their granddaughter who just returned from a whirlwind tennis competition in Australia. The opportunity was so last-minute that neither of her two Tulsa-based coaches could make the trip. She arrived in Melbourne three days early to get used to the courts, but mainly the 17-hour time change. After winning three matches – one against a player ranked No. 3 in the International Tennis Federation’s world rankings who entered the tournament as the No. 1 seed – the unseeded 16-year-old from Tulsa found herself in the quarterfinals at one of the four biggest junior tournaments in the world. Her ITF ranking is now 85 out of the top 200. Congratulations Olivia! And congratulations to proud grandparents, Larry and Jane Mozer!
