PRLog - Jul. 25, 2012 - The defending champion Washington Kastles won their World TeamTennis record 28th straight match, downing the host New York Sportimes, 21-16, at Sportime Randall's Island Wednesday night.  The Kastles, who won the 2011 World TeamTennis title with a 16-0 record, have not lost a WTT match since July 22, 2010.

Washington (12-0) won the first three events, with Reynolds beating Jesse Witten, 5-3, in singles, the team of Edina Gallovits-Hall and Raquel Kops-Jones toppling Martina Hingis and Ashley Harkleroad in doubles, 5-2, and the men's doubles tandem of Bobby Reynolds and Treat Huey upending Sportimes captain John McEnroe and Robert Kendrick, 5-3, for a 15-8 Washington lead.

Hingis earned a win over Gallovits-Hall, 5-1, to narrow the hosts' deficit to 16-13.

But Washington closed out the win with a mixed doubles victory, the duo of Huey and Kops-Jones besting legends McEnroe and Hingis, 5-3.

In addition, at halftime, winners were announced from tryouts held on Saturday for boys and girls ages 8-14 at Sportime Randall's Island for spots at the John McEnrore Tennis Academy.  Winners included Cameron Daniels, Oakland Gardens, N.Y.; Diane McCready, Brooklyn; Leonte Wilder, Plainfield, N.J.; Sean Wei, Yorktown Heights, N.Y.; Natalie Eordekian, Woodside, N.Y.; Palmer Clare, North Bellmore, N.Y.; Tomas Kopczynski, Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.; Amber O'Dell, Chesterfield, Mich.

The Sportimes (7-5) close out the regular season with road matches at Springfield (Mo.) on Friday and Kansas City on Saturday, needing one win or a loss by Boston and Philadelphia to clinch the second Eastern Conference playoff spot.  Washington will make the same trip, visiting Kansas City on Friday and Springfield Saturday.
