Mattek-Sands Launches Official Website
INDIAN WELLS, CA, USA
- Bethanie Mattek-Sands, currently ranked in the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour's Top 40 in both singles and doubles, launched her official website on Friday, March 13, 2009.
Mattek-Sands, one of the few all-court players in the upper echelon of the sport and America's No.3 player behind the Williams sisters, is playing the best tennis of her young career. She reached her first Grand Slam second week at Wimbledon last year and her first singles final at Québec City in October; she missed the first few months of 2009 with a hip injury but returned this past week at Indian Wells and hopes to continue her success in the year to come.
Custom designed by Bruce Quiroz of Elemental Studios, her official website is unique and interactive, and includes features such as a flash introduction, ongoing "Bethanie's Blog" and Tour and match updates. It also includes various pages full of information, pictures and video from her past and current matches, and more.
"I am ecstatic about the opportunity to have such a unique site that I can share with my many fans. This will give people a better look into my world and the person I am rather than trying to figure me out on their own. I am eager to get blogging with my fans to see what they want me to wear and give them a feel for what it's like to be a part of the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour through my eyes."
Mattek-Sands began playing tennis at age 5, training at the world famous Evert Academy, and played her first pro event at age 14. Over the course of her Tour career she has won four doubles titles and amassed almost $1 million in prize money. Her outgoing personality has won her fans worldwide both on and off the court; she also is known for an adventurous sense of fashion, having had many stories published on her court attire and the unique personality she has brought.
Mattek-Sands was born March 23, 1985 in Rochester, Minnesota, and currently trains and resides in Phoenix, Arizona. She married former athlete and Phoenix businessman Justin Sands in November 2008.
