34: The number of consecutive victories recorded  by the Kastles during their historic run, breaking the record for most consecutive professional sports wins in history, a feat previously held by the NBA’s 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers.

5: The number of  matches the Kastles won against Springfield.  In a dominant 25-12 win in Washington, D.C., they swept the men’s singles, women’s doubles, mixed doubles, women’s singles and men’s doubles ties.

4: The number of WTT championships that the Kastles have won in the last five years, ever since their foundation by owner Mark Ein in 2008.

3: The Kastles also made history by recording a championship three-peat, a first in World TeamTennis play.

2: MVP awards, each to Bobby Reynolds (Finals MVP) and Martina Hingis (Female MVP Player of the Year).
