News from Mylan World TeamTennis                                                                July 4, 2014





Mylan is proud to be the title sponsor of World TeamTennis (WTT) for the second consecutive year. Last year, we demonstrated our shared commitment to helping people around the world overcome barriers to access. For WTT, access means making sure everyone has the opportunity to participate on a team -regardless of age, gender or race- and to compete both in sports and in life. For Mylan, it means providing the world's 7 billion people with access to high quality medicine. We look forward to continuing to spread this powerful message through some new and exciting events.


This summer, in partnership with the United States Tennis Association, all Mylan WTT teams will host PlayDays to provide free instruction to thousands of youth. Children age 16 and under can also come on the court after every Mylan WTT match and get player autographs. In addition, as part of the Mylan Aces program, Mylan will donate $1,000 every night to the league team that serves the most aces. Donations will be made to the team's designated charity. Keep track of our Aces at!


For the third consecutive year, Mylan is a sponsor of Mylan WTT Smash Hits, a charity tennis event that is near and dear to the company. The event benefits the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF). As one of the world's leading providers of affordable antiretroviral medicines used to treat HIV/AIDS, Mylan has a long history of taking an active role in the fight against this disease. In fact, approximately 40% of people in the developing world being treated for HIV/AIDS depends on a Mylan product. We strongly support the missions of EJAF and World TeamTennis, and share in their passionate commitment to reducing the incidence of HIV/AIDS around the world. In the first two years of Mylan's sponsorship, we were able to raise nearly $2 million. We know that this year's event will be another huge success!

Many Wilson players were successful in last month's Eastbourne Aegon International Tennis Championships. Feliciano Lopez won the Eastbourne grass court title for the second consecutive time, beating Richard Gasquet in three sets. American Madison Keys also won the Eastbourne title, which was her inaugural WTA title and made her the youngest person in the top fifty. In doubles competition, Yung-Jan from Taiwan paired up with Chan Hao-ching from China to win the women's title while partners Horia Tecau and Jean-Julien Rojer teamed up to take the men's title against Santiago Gonzales and Scott Lipsky.

Three more Mylan WTT Rec League teams clinched their spots at the national championship in the third national qualifier of the year in Verona, N.Y. over the weekend of June 6-8. Two teams went undefeated to claim titles, but all three will advance to the Mylan WTT Nationals at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, Calif., on November 7-9. 

Hosted at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y., this particular national qualifier featured competitors from the three senior divisions - Senior 3.5, Senior 4.0 and Super Senior 3.5. Seven total teams from various
points in New York and New Jersey came to compete over the three days. The teams advancing to the finals include the Asian Sensations from Englewood Cliffs, N.J. (pictured to the right); Tri-City Hotshots from Delanson, N.Y.; and Al's Aces from Syracuse, N.Y.

Last month Mylan WTT and ESPN announced a new multiyear partnership to air the Mylan WTT Finals live on ESPN2 and broadcast more than 60 hours of programming annually on ESPN3. The four-year agreement includes streaming one match each night of the Mylan WTT season on ESPN3 beginning on July 7. The first featured match on ESPN3 is a battle between the league's two new teams, the Austin Aces and the San Diego Aviators. Andy Roddick, who joined the WTT ownership group in 2013, heads up the Austin team that will take on San Diego in their home opener. To read more about the league's partnership with the sports-programming giant and to view the entire streaming schedule for the upcoming season, click HERE.

As an eight-year veteran of the league, former world No. 1 Andy Roddick will do something this season of Mylan WTT that he's never done before: play for his hometown team. Last year, Roddick helped bring the Austin Aces to Texas and will lead their team during their inaugural season in their quest for the King Trophy. Roddick will join the Aces for 10 of the 14 regular season matches as they try to earn the top spot in the Western Conference and make it to the conference championship on July 24. To read more on Roddick and his team, click HERE.

The major that marks the start of the sport's summer season is entering its final weekend and Mylan WTT has a number of players that are still in contention for men's doubles and mixed doubles titles. World no. 1s Bob and Mike Bryan (San Diego Aviators) won their semifinal match on Friday to return to the Finals. Also, Aisam Qureshi, of the Texas Wild, and Vera Dushevina have advanced to the semifinals in the mixed doubles competition. To view the most up-to-date results, click HERE.




This year, over 150 new 10 & Under players have participated in at least one of the 2014 Freedoms 10 & Under TeamTennis circuit events. These one-day events have been held once a month since January, consisting of coed teams that play the Mylan World TeamTennis format on sixty-foot courts. Each match consists of sets for boys' and girls' singles, doubles, as well as mixed doubles. Every game in each match is a contributing point to the total score of the match. Cheering, coaching and substitutions are encouraged to help the team atmosphere where kids can learn to have fun and compete.


Each child who participated in the Freedoms 10 & Under event received a ticket to the Philadelphia Freedoms match on July 18, a one-year USTA membership, prizes, lunch, and an opportunity to hear from world-renowned tennis celebrities such as Katrina Adams and Luke Jensen. With the success of this event, we will be adding a 12 & Under Green Ball Team Event, with the first being held on Saturday, July 19 at the Episcopal Academy in Philadelphia.
