Under A Week And Counting

We are now under a week and counting!!!  It’s Wednesday evening and only 6 nights from now I’ll be in the Smith Center at GWU watching my beloved Washington Kastles first home match.

Martina Hingis and Frances Tiafoe will be “in the house” on 7/18 and 7/19.  Bob and Mike Bryan will be with Frances on 7/20 and then on 7/21 Martina, Frances and Nick Kyrgios will represent the “home team”.  After a road trip, the Kastles return to the Smith Center on 7/25 and our Wimbledon stars Venus Williams, Sam Querrey and Bruno Soares will be there for the “home team”.  Sam and Bruno will be with the team also on 7/26 and 7/29.

As of today, July 12, Venus is in the Women’s Semifinals, Sam is in the Men’s Semifinals, and Martina (along with Jamie Murray) and Bruno (along with Elena Vesnina) are in the Quarterfinals of the Mixed Doubles.

All in all a pretty good tournament for the Kastles stars.

Less Than Two Weeks Until Kastles Time!!!

Well, it’s July 4, 2017 and we are under two weeks away from yet another season of Washington Kastles World Team Tennis.  This should be a great season since it’s the 10th Anniversary season of the Kastles.

This should be an even more special season now that Mark Ein, our beloved Washington Kastles owner now owns a majority interest in the entire World Team Tennis league.

The season opens away at the Springfield Lasers on Sunday, July 16, 2017.  That is followed up by four home matches in a row on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday July 18-21, 2017.  On Sunday and Monday July 23 and 24 the Kastles play back to back matches at Philadelphia.  They then return home for back-to-back home matches with the Springfield Lasers and NY Empire on Tuesday and Wednesday July 25 and 26.  On Friday, July 28 the Kastles are away at the Springfield Lasers and then return home for the last home match of the season against the Orange County Breakers on Saturday, July 29.  They then finish out the season on the road at the NY Empire on Sunday, July 30, at Orange County on Tuesday, August 1 and finally on Wednesday, August 2 at San Diego.

Almost time for Murphy, Bob and Mike Bryan, Martina, Venus, Madison Brengle, Nick Kyrgios, Sam Querrey, A-Rod, Bruno Soares, Treat Huey and Frandes Tiafoe!!!

Bring the season on.

Martina On A Roll With Latisha

Our very own Washington Kastle Martina Hingis still paired with Latisha Chan won four more Women’s Doubles titles.

Latisha and Martina beat the team of Timea Babos and Adrea Hlavackova in the finals of the Madrid Open in Madrid, Spain on clay.

They then followed that up by a win over Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina at the Italian Open in Rome, Italy also on clay.

They then won by a walkover by Jelena Jankovic and Anastasija Sevastova at the Mallorca Open in Mallorca, Spain on grass.

In the warmup for Wimbledon they won over Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua at the Eastbourne International in the U.K.

Way to go Martina and Latisha and good luck at Wimbledon.  Looking forward to Kastles time July 16, 2017!!!
