The Kastles Dream Team DID IT!!! Leander Paes and Martina Hingis put their experience playing Mixed Doubles for the World Champion Washington Kastles to good use.  Martina and Leander took their 17-2 MXD record for the Kastles to Melbourne and didn’t drop a set – 10 sets in a row – to claim the title.

And definite props to Leander for mentioning Mark Ein and the fans in Washington.
