Quick. When was the last time we had an undefeated professional sports team in America? If you guess the Miami Dolphins 1972 football team – as many people do – you are wrong.
The answer is the 2011 Washington Kastles professional tennis team, which went 16-0 last year and won the World Team Tennis championship, to win their second title in four years. Tonight, World Team Tennis kicks of its 2012 season, as the Kastles – with two fresh Wimbledon champions helping to lead the way – open defense of their title in Orange County against the Breakers.
It’s tough to go undefeated in any major league professional sport. The WTT was founded two years after the Dolphins’ undefeated season, yet it took decades before one team found perfection. But something more important happened 40 years ago that helped not only WTT but all of us.
