Second Serve


By Nick Georgandis

The Springfield Lasers reasserted themselves as the best team in the Western Conference on Monday with a clutch 20-18 win over the Texas Wild in World Team Tennis (WTT) action.

The winning points came courtesy of the Lasers' mixed doubles squad of Alisa Kleybanova and Jean-Julien Rojer, who defeated the Wild's Darija Jurak and Aisam-Ul-Haq Quereshi 5-3. The victory moved Springfield back into sole possession of first place in the Western Conference at 5-2.

Texas and a resurgent Orange County are tied for second at 4-3, while Sacramento has slid from first to last in the span of a week at 3-4.

Orange County handily defeated Sacramento 21-13 on Monday with three 5-1 routs in women's singles (courtesy Coco Vandeweghe), men's singles (winner, Steve Johnson) and women's doubles (Vandeweghe and Maria Elena Camerin).

In the Eastern Conference on Monday night, the Washington Kastles and New York Sportimes strengthened their positions as the top two teams with convincing wins.

Washington improved to a division-leading 4-2 record with a 23-18 win over the Boston Lobsters. Newly-inducted International Tennis Hall of Fame member Martina Hingis recorded a clutch 5-3 win over Jill Craybas to lead the Kastles, and also teamed with Anastasia Rodionova to win the women's doubles match-up 5-2, as well as with Leander Paes to win the mixed doubles' match 5-4.

Meanwhile New York improved to 3-3 with a 22-17 win over the Philadelphia Freedom. The Sportimes won four of the five match-ups, although Philadelphia kept it close. Philadelphia fell to a league-worst 1-5.
