"We've had the support of incredible fans over the years. Not just the tennis community, but the entire Sacramento region. World TeamTennis is not only for tennis enthusiasts. The fast-paced, action-packed format is great fun for the whole family," Osborne added.
This year's team includes a standout group of talent that includes Mardy Fish, who is currently ranked the No. 12 singles player in the world; former World No. 1 doubles player and team captain, Mark Knowles; ATP singles title holder, Ryan Sweeting; current No. 31 ranked singles player and ATP World Tour Title Holder, Kevin Anderson; Coco Vandeweghe; UCLA All-American and Sacramento native, Yasmin Schnack; and UCLA standout, Asia Muhammad.

"Not only does Coach Bryan bring the best out of his players, but he is such an ambassador for the game. He's one of the best coaches in the world and he is an integral part of our goal to have the best team on and off the court," Osborne said. Bryan is a frequent national speaker and clinician, as well as the author of "The Formula, Raising Your Child to be a Champion in Athletics, Arts and Academics." He was named one of the "35 Most Powerful People in Tennis" by Racquet Magazine and has received a variety of awards and accolades in the sport.
