Andy Roddick, Sloane Stephens Lead World TeamTennis Player Draft

AndyRoddick

(February 12, 2013) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Andy Roddick is returning to the tennis
courts this summer.

The former world number one was the top pick in Tuesday’s World
TeamTennis Marquee Draft. Roddick, who first started with Mylan WTT in
2000, will play for the Springfield Lasers. This will be Roddick’s 7th
Mylan WTT season and his first since 2010.

“I first played World TeamTennis when I was just starting out and have
played throughout my career so I’m excited to be back,” said Roddick. “I’ve
always liked the competition and the fan energy. I love being on a team and
am looking forward to playing for the Springfield Lasers this July.”

Sloane Stephens, a young American who is currently ranked No. 17 on the WTA
Tour, was selected by the Philadelphia Freedoms with their first-round pick.
The 20-year-old Stephens first played Mylan World TeamTennis in 2009 as part
of an all-amateur USTA team.

The newest Mylan WTT franchise, Texas Wild, will bring the world’s best
doubles team to their new home court in Irving, Texas. The Wild, who
relocated to Texas this year after 20 seasons in Kansas City, protected the
rights to Bob and Mike Bryan who are back for their 11th season.

Venus Williams, who led the Washington Kastles to their second straight
undefeated season and championship title in 2012, returns to the nation’s
capital for her 10th Mylan WTT season. The three-time champion Kastles will
be taking a 32-match win streak into their 2013 season opener.

Two of the top Americans on the ATP Tour will once again play for the
Sacramento Capitals. The Caps protected their rights to Sam Querrey and
Mardy Fish. Querrey is ranked No. 20 on the ATP Tour and Fish is No. 32.

In a trade completed prior to Tuesday’s draft, the Boston Lobsters acquired
the rights to Mark Philippoussis from the Philadelphia Freedoms.

Teams will complete their lineups next month when the Mylan WTT Roster Draft
is held March 12 in Indian Wells, Calif. Dates for all Mylan WTT matches
will be announced during the week of March 4 when the 2013 schedule is
released.

Each of the eight teams will play 14 matches – seven home, seven away.
Eastern Conference teams are the Boston Lobsters, New York Sportimes,
Philadelphia Freedoms and Washington Kastles. Western Conference teams are
Orange County Breakers, Sacramento Capitals, Springfield Lasers and Texas
Wild.

The eight teams will compete in two conferences during the regular season
which concludes on Wednesday, July 24. The top two teams from both the
Western and Eastern Conference advance to the 2013 Mylan WTT Conference
Championships which will be hosted on Thursday, July 25 by the top-seeded
team in each Conference. The 2013 Mylan WTT Finals will be contested on the

CHARLESTON, S.C. (September 16, 2012) – Venus Williams led the Washington Kastles to their second consecutive World TeamTennis title today with a 20-19 victory over the Sacramento Capitals at the Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston, S.C. Williams was also named the Finals MVP, winning her sets in women’s doubles, mixed doubles and the decisive final set of women’s singles.

The win gives the Kastles 32 consecutive match wins, the second longest streak in U.S. pro sports history. The top mark is 33, held by the NBA’s 1971-72 Lakers.

With the overall score tied at 15-15 heading into the final set, Williams edged Coco Vandeweghe 5-4 in women’s singles to give the Kastles their third title in the past four seasons. Although Williams was part of championship teams in Philadelphia and Washington, this was the first time she had played in the championship match. She credited her Kastles teammates for giving her the edge in a tight final set. “I had to come out on fire today,” said Williams. “Knowing I had to play for my team was motivating.”

“Coco played her heart out,” said Sacramento coach Wayne Bryan. ” I’m very proud of our team and congratulations to the Kastles.”

Sacramento led early when Kevin Anderson defeated Bobby Reynolds in the opening set, winning men’s singles 5-3. Anderson served up three aces and won 79 percent of his first serve points compared to 61 percent for Reynolds.

Washington broke Asia Muhammad’s serve twice in women’s doubles and closed out the set on Venus Williams’ serve, 5-1.

Men’s doubles was highlighted by brilliant shot-making by the Kastles’ Leander Paes but it was the Caps that broke Paes serve for a 2-1 lead. Anderson pushed the lead to 4-2 on his serve and broke Paes serve for a second time to take the set 5-2 and lead 11-10 at halftime.

Coach Wayne Bryan started Anderson in mixed doubles to take advantage of his big serve and the strategy worked as Sacramento won the first game and broke Paes serve to lead 2-0. Washington broke back against Vandeweghe’s serve then Williams held to tie the set at 2-2. After a seesaw battle that evened the score at 4-all, Washington pulled out the set win in a 9-point tiebreak, 5-4 (1).

Washington Kastles Extend Win Streak to 31, Advance to WTT Finals

CHARLESTON, S.C. (September 15, 2012) –The Washington Kastles extended their win streak to 31 matches and moved one step closer to another undefeated season with a 19-15 win over the New York Sportimes at the WTT Eastern Conference Championship  on Saturday at the Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston, S.C.

Washington will face the Western Conference Champion Sacramento Capitals on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. in the WTT Finals. The Kastles are the defending WTT champions, winning the 2011 WTT title with an undefeated 16-0 season.

With the score tied at 14-14 heading into the final set of women’s singles, Ashley Harkleroad gave New York the overall lead with a break of Venus Williams’ serve in the opening game. Williams immediately broke back and ran out the set and the match 5-1. “I enjoy the pressure and there was so much pressure today to keep the streak going and get into the Finals,” said Williams.

It didn’t take long for the Washington Kastles to take early control of the match, with 2012 WTT Male MVP Bobby Reynolds and Leander Paes teaming up for a 5-2 win over John McEnroe and Robert Kendrick.

The Sportimes battled back in mixed doubles to even the match after two sets with a 5-2 win. Kveta Peschke started with McEnroe and ended the set with Robert Kendrick for the victory over Venus Williams and Leander Paes.

In men’s singles, the steady play of Reynolds was too much for New York’s Jesse Witten as Reynolds won the set 5-2, giving the Kastles a 12-9 halftime lead.

Peschke and Ashley Harkleroad upended Williams and Anastasia Rodionova in women’s doubles 5-2 to even the match at 14-all heading into the final set.

The key to the Kastles victory was playing the big points better than New York. Washington won seven of ten 3-all points throughout the five sets. “We had to play hard,” said Paes. “Hats off to New York, they threw everything at us. I am so happy to be on this Kastles team. This is what we do, we fight together as a team. Tomorrow’s final will be a real highlight of the season.”

The Sacramento Capitals lineup for the WTT Finals includes Kevin Anderson, Coco Vandeweghe, Mark Knowles, Yasmin Schnack and Asia Muhammad.

World TeamTennis Finals Headed to Charleston, S.C.

NEW YORK, N.Y. (March 28, 2011) – The 2011 World TeamTennis (WTT) Finals are headed to the “Best Tennis Town in America.”  The Family Circle Tennis Center in Charleston, S.C., will host the 2011 WTT Finals Weekend presented by GEICO, July 22-24.

 

The WTT Finals Weekend is the culmination of three weeks of intense coed team tennis competition featuring some of the biggest names in tennis playing in the WTT Pro League presented by GEICO.  The three-day, season-ending event will include WTT Conference Championship matches and the WTT Finals.  In 2010, the Kansas City Explorers captured their first championship and the King Trophy, named after WTT co-founder Billie Jean King.

 

The road to Charleston begins on July 4 when the 36th season of the WTT Pro League kicks off and runs through July 21, with the top two teams from each conference advancing to the WTT Finals Weekend.  The Eastern Conference Championship will be at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 22, with the Western Conference Championship set for 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 23.  The Conference Champions face off in the WTT Finals at 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 24.

 

Tickets for the WTT Finals Weekend presented by GEICO go on sale April 4 at 10 a.m. EDT.  Weekend packages range from $50 to $150, with single session tickets $15-$55.  Tickets are available through the Family Circle Tennis Center Box Office at (800) 677-2293 or through Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000.  Tickets can be purchased online at www.FamilyCircleCup.com or www.Ticketmaster.com.

 

The city of Charleston was recognized last year as the “Best Tennis Town” in America by the United States Tennis Association.  The Family Circle Tennis Center is one of the premiere tennis facilities in the U.S. and is the annual home of the popular WTA event, Family Circle Cup (April 2-10).

 

“Charleston has such a rich tennis history and it’s a market that we have wanted to bring World TeamTennis to for a long time,” said WTT CEO/Commissioner Ilana Kloss.  “The Family Circle Tennis Center will be a tremendous showcase for our championship matches.  It’s also a great destination for WTT fans from all over the U.S. to come enjoy world-class team tennis.” This is only the second time in WTT history that the Finals have been hosted outside of a franchise market.

 

“Billie Jean and Ilana have built something very special with World TeamTennis,” said Bob Moran, General Manager, Family Circle Tennis Center.  “We’ve been watching from afar for the past couple of years, and we’ve been very envious of the type of event WTT has become.  The energy and fun atmosphere that surrounds the event is infectious.  More importantly, the players want to win, not just for themselves, but for their teammates.  It reminds us of the Davis Cup tie we held in Charleston in 2004.”

 

“It’s fitting for Charleston, The Best Tennis Town in America, to be hosting this great event at Family Circle Stadium on Daniel Island,” says Nancy Weber, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer, Meredith Corporation, the publisher of Family Circle magazine.    “Family Circle has a long standing history with Women’s tennis, and Billie Jean King has been there from the beginning.  Meredith is honored to continue our commitment to the great sport of tennis.  We are proud to host this year’s WTT Finals Weekend.”

 

“Great tennis always finds a home in Charleston,” said WTT co-founder Billie Jean King.  “There have been so many memorable matches played in this stadium and we think the WTT Finals will add to that history.  The tennis fans there appreciate the game and I’m confident they will embrace team tennis as well.”

 

“We’re extremely excited to be hosting the semifinals and finals at Family Circle Stadium, and we’re looking forward to working with Billie Jean, Ilana and the entire WTT organization.  We know all the players, coaches and guests will feel completely at home on Daniel Island with one of the best cities in Charleston as the backdrop,” added Moran.

 

A WTT team is comprised of a coach, along with two male and two female players who play five total sets of singles, doubles and mixed doubles.   WTT matches feature cumulative and no-ad scoring, as well as Overtime and Supertiebreakers.  The first team to reach five games wins each set.  A nine-point tiebreaker is played if a set reaches four games all.  One point is awarded for each game won.  If necessary, Overtime and a Supertiebreaker are played to determine the winner of the match.

 

Bob Moran noted, “Last July, I took a few members of our staff on a road trip up to Washington, DC, to see the Kastles play.  We returned with the idea of hosting a team.  The next step was having a meeting with Ilana while she and Billie Jean were at Kiawah Island for USTA meetings.  That’s when the discussion of hosting the Finals began.”

 

Each of the WTT Pro League nine teams will play 14 matches – seven home, seven away, during the regular season.  Eastern Conference teams are the Boston Lobsters, New York Sportimes, Philadelphia Freedoms and Washington Kastles.  Western Conference teams are Newport Beach Breakers, Sacramento Capitals, St. Louis Aces, Springfield Lasers and Kansas City Explorers.

 

The Marquee Player lineup for 2011 showcases three generations of tennis stars and features some of the sports’ biggest names, including Serena Williams (Washington Kastles), Venus Williams (Washington Kastles), Kim Clijsters (New York Sportimes), John McEnroe (New York Sportimes), Martina Hingis (New York Sportimes), Lindsay Davenport (St. Louis Aces), Anna Kournikova (St. Louis Aces), Pete Sampras (Newport Beach Breakers), Sam Querrey (Washington Kastles), John Isner (Boston Lobsters), Mardy Fish (Sacramento Capitals), Mark Philippoussis (St. Louis Aces), Bob and Mike Bryan (Kansas City Explorers), James Blake (Boston Lobsters) and Melanie Oudin (Philadelphia Freedoms).
