Arrow World TeamTennis 2007

Okay, so it's a little early! But we might as well have a place set up to put any news that crops up during the year. Here's an article from the WTT site for starters:

Sacramento to host 2007 WTT Championship Weekend

The 2007 World TeamTennis Championship Weekend presented by Advanta will be held July 27-29 at the home court of the Sacramento Capitals, Allstate Stadium at the Westfield Galleria at Roseville in Roseville, Calif. WTT officials awarded the event to the Capitals for the 4th time in League history.

The top two teams from the Western and Eastern Conferences will advance to the WTT Championship Weekend after the 2007 regular season, which runs July 5-25. Conference championships will be decided during the semifinal matches on Friday, July 27, and Saturday, July 28. The conference champions advance to the WTT Championship on Sunday, July 29, to battle for the King Trophy.
The Capitals move to a new site this summer, the parking lot at the Westfield Galleria at Roseville, where they will play their seven home regular season matches. The court is located on the southeast corner of the mall near Nordstrom.

WTT officials awarded the event to the Capitals because of their proven track record as one of the League’s most successful franchises, according to WTT CEO/Commissioner Ilana Kloss. “We’re confident that the Capitals can stage a successful championship weekend,” said Kloss. “Their new venue will make a terrific showcase for our premier event and the Capitals fan base is one of the most enthusiastic and supportive in World TeamTennis.”

Sacramento co-owner Lonnie Nielson expects the Capitals to be part of the lineup for the finals weekend. “We’re going to put together the strongest team possible and if we do our job on the court this summer, we’ll have the opportunity to play for the King Trophy in front of our fans,” he said. Nielson hopes to bring back the core of his 2006 team including Elena Likhovtseva, Mark Knowles, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and hometown favorite Sam Warburg.

Season ticket packages are currently available and will include tickets to the WTT Championship Weekend. Season tickets are available through the Capitals ticket office at 916.638.4001 or can be purchased in person at the Capitals ticket kiosk in Westfield Galleria beginning Nov. 20, 2006 through January 6, 2007.

Sacramento is a perennial front-runner, having won the WTT Championship a record 5 times. In 2006, the Capitals were knocked out in the semifinals by the Newport Beach Breakers. The Philadelphia Freedoms dominated the Breakers in the Championship match to win the 2006 title.

About World TeamTennis:
2007 will be the 32nd year of competition for World TeamTennis. The unique gender-balanced team concept for WTT was created in the early 70s by League co-founders Billie Jean King and Larry King. The format used for a WTT Pro League match features teams comprised of two men, two women and a coach. Each match consists of five sets, with one set each of men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles.

Advanta is the presenting sponsor of the WTT Pro League and the official business credit card of World TeamTennis. Official WTT Pro League sponsors also include Bälle de Mätch, Gatorade, Geico and Wilson Racquet Sports. For more information on WTT, visit www.WTT.com.

She only played for them once this year, I think. Now that she's an established top player, I really doubt she'll want to commit to any more than that, if even that much. So they probably don't mind letting her go. She wasn't all that successful with the WTT-style of play anyway; it takes some getting used to.

Knowles and Likhotseva, on the other hand, are both true WTT masters. Both are very experienced in WTT play, are willing to play a lot of dates, and they both have earned WTT MVP honors, so I know the Capitals will want to hang on to them most of all.

WTT announces 2007 Pro League schedule

Venus Williams, Sampras, McEnroe, Kournikova, Vaidisova and Bryan Brothers return for 2007 season

NEW YORK, N.Y. (February 5, 2007) --- The regular season schedule for the 2007 World TeamTennis Pro League presented by Advanta was released today and features appearances from some of the top names in tennis, including Venus Williams, Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, Anna Kournikova, Nicole Vaidisova and the Bryan Brothers. The 2007 WTT schedule includes 77 matches in 11 markets beginning July 5 and running through July 25.

The top two teams in both the Eastern and Western Conferences will advance to the season-ending WTT Championship Weekend, set for July 27-29, in Roseville, Calif.

Five teams exercised their option to protect returning marquee players for their 2007 lineups. Venus Williams returns to the defending WTT Champions, the Philadelphia Freedoms, and the Newport Beach Breakers, who lost to the Freedoms in the 2006 WTT Finals, are bringing back tennis legend Pete Sampras.

John McEnroe returns to the New York Sportimes for his seventh WTT season and the world’s top-ranked doubles team and 2007 Australian Open doubles champions, Mike and Bob Bryan, will be back on the multi-colored WTT courts this summer for the Kansas City Explorers. The Sacramento Capitals protected both of their marquee players, two-time Grand Slam doubles champion Anna Kournikova and world No. 9 Nicole Vaidisova, who recently advanced to the singles semifinals at the Australian Open.

Team lineups will be completed on March 27 when WTT holds their annual player draft in Miami.

Re: World TeamTennis 2007

WTT would be a great idea if it had its own season for it. WTA and ATP should end at the US Open and then have the WTT have its own season from Sept. until end of Nov.

Money talks. Billy Jean owns the Freedoms so she will definitely stack it
