Kastles Extend Win Streak to 33

Mylan_WTT_FINAL_TM_1

(July 8, 2013) The Washington Kastles started the 2013 Mylan World TeamTennis season just the way they ended 2012 – with a win.  The Kastles 23-15 win over the New York Sportimes on Monday night in Washington, DC, was the team’s 33rd consecutive victory, tying the U.S. major pro sports team record set by the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.  Among the capacity crowd on hand to watch the Kastles receive championship rings in a pre-match ceremony and tie the Lakers mark was Mylan WTT co-founder Billie Jean King, NFL great John Riggins and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.  The Kastles were led by Martina Hingis who dominated Anna-Lena Groenefeld 5-1 in women’s singles, and partnered with Leander Paes for a 5-4 mixed doubles win.

 

Although injured and unable to play, Venus Williams was on hand to receive her 2012 Championship ring and cheer on the team from the bench.  Earlier in the day, Williams joined her 2012 Championship teammates Paes, Anastasia Rodionova, Bobby Reynolds, Coach Murphy Jensen, owner Mark Ein, Mylan WTT CEO/Commissioner Ilana Kloss and King at the White House for a visit with President Obama.

 

The Kastles try to make sports history and break the mark on Tuesday evening at home when they host the Boston Lobsters at 7:10 p.m. ET.  The July 9 match will air live on Tennis Channel.  For more information, visit www.WTT.com

Halep and Mahut Claim Rosmalen Titles

nicolas-mahut

(June 22, 2013) Nicolas Mahut became a first-time winner on the ATP tour on Sunday besting Stanislas Wawrinka 6-3, 6-3 for the Topshelf Open title. The 31-year-old became the second qualifier this year to win a title. Ernest Gulbis was the first, winning at Delray Beach.

Ranked at No. 240 Mahut is the lowest ranked titlist on the ATP World Tour since 2008, when 244th ranked Kei Nishikori won the title in Delray Beach.

“It’s amazing. I cannot believe I won today,” said the Frenchman.” I didn’t know if I was going to play again when I had some bad times with my knee. All my team helped me a lot. We worked hard and here I am with the trophy. It’s a good story.”

“Emotionally, the last game was difficult, but I really served great, Mahut said in regard to winning the match. “ We played five points and I made four first serves, which helped a lot. Today was really tough to play in the conditions. It was rainy and cold, windy. I won my serve at 3-3 [in the first set], then I broke him. That for me, was the key to the match.”

Simona Halep was the champion on the women’s side, earning her second straight tournament win with a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Kirsten Flipkens in a rain-interrupted contest.

Halep won her first career WTA title last week by besting Andrea Petkovic to win a clay court title at Nurnberger.

“It’s incredible, because I played really well on grass after a week on clay,” the Romanian said.” Today I played well. I was a little bit nervous at the start but I just tried to fight for every point. She’s playing a very difficult game for me, slicing a lot, but I played every point and just kept going, and I won in the end. I’m really happy. I want to enjoy this evening. It’s a special moment for me.”

NEW YORK, N.Y. (June 18, 2013) – More than 200 hours of action from Mylan World TeamTennis, including over 70 hours of live coverage, will air on a combination of national and regional television networks and online this July.

Televised matches two and three will feature Springfield Lasers and former US Open champion Andy Roddick visiting the Philadelphia Freedoms on July 10 and then the Washington Kastles on July 11.  In May 2013, Roddick and Venus Williams joined the World TeamTennis ownership group.

 

The top-ranked ATP doubles team Bob and Mike Bryan are showcased on July 20 as the newest Mylan WTT team Texas Wild hosts the Orange County Breakers at their new home in Irving, Texas.  The Wild played for 20 seasons in Kansas City, Mo., before relocating earlier this year.

 

The Mylan WTT Finals presented by GEICO, which takes place on July 28, rounds out the 5-match series in the home market of the Eastern Conference Champion.

In a prelude to the July season, the 2013 Mylan WorldTeamTennis preview show presented by Wilson will run this month.  This 30-minute telecast will cover the eight team coed professional team tennis league.  The show will air throughout June on Tennis Channel and regional sports networks.  The preview show includes in-depth analysis of each franchise, complete with interviews, highlights and a look at key matchups heading into the July season; plus a review of the unique format, scoring and rules.

 

In the featured interviews, fans will hear from all the champions including Roddick on playing WTT at 17, Venus Williams on her greatest moment of 2012, Martina Hingis on playing for the Washington Kastles as they try to continue their historic winning streak on par with the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers and co-founder Billie Jean King on how it all began four decades ago.  Interviews with Bob and Mike Bryan, John McEnroe, Mardy Fish, Leander Paes and many other stars are also included in the preview show.  For a full list of Mylan WTT telecasts, visit www.WTT.com/TV.
