Washington Kastles coach Murphy Jensen compares American veteran Bobby Reynolds to Roger Federer. Reynolds was the only member of the team to participate in each of its 34 consecutive victories.

“He’s the Roger Federer of World Team Tennis,” Jensen told the New York Times. “He’s the closer. He’s the meat and potatoes, the ham sandwich and the scrambled eggs. The guy just has so much to give the game, and the atmosphere and the format out here perfectly suits that type of player.”
