2006-07: Freshman
In her lone season with the Huskers, Diana Kuhl turned in a phenomenal freshman season and was one of the top performers in the Big 12. Following up a strong fall season, Kuhl started at the No. 2 singles position and played there all spring. Kuhl's season got off to a rough start, going 3-5 in her first eight matches, but she caught fire down the stretch, winning nine of her last 12. Her six conference wins tied her for second on the squad with fellow freshman Wiveca Swarting and trailed only Imke Reimers with eight Big 12 victories.

Kuhl played masterfully on the doubles court, leading Nebraska with a team-high 15 doubles victories in the spring and earning first-team All-Big 12 Doubles honors. Partnered primarly with Reimers at the No. 1 doubles position, the tandem cruised to a record of 11-5, including an impressive mark of 6-4 in the conference. Kuhl also teamed up with Swarting at the No. 2 position, with the freshmen duo going 7-5 overall and 4-1 in the spring.

Before Nebraska
A skilled youth player, Kuhl attended Ohm-Erlangen Gymnasium where she earned a national ranking as high as No. 114 by the German Tennis Federation.

Kuhl had her greatest run of success during the 2004 tournament season when she earned a pair of tournament championships. Along the way, Kuhl picked up hardware for winning the Bavarian Championship and the Mettelfrankische Meisterschaften Tournament.

Along with her high school tennis, Kuhl played for coach Andreas Ploptz for the TB-Erlangen club team.

Diana is the daughter of Monika and Karl Kuhl, and was born on June 10, 1987, in Rottenbach, Germany. She has one brother Alexander, 22. Diana is majoring in general studies.
