As Mylan World TeamTennis gears up for its 40th season, Sacramento has plenty to celebrate as it welcomes a brand new team into Mylan WTT’s Western Conference. The California Dream, owned by Jeff Launius, is bringing professional team tennis back to the NoCal area with a roster bound to play some exciting matches this summer.
“We have some extreme competition in the Western Conference,” Launius said. “It’s going to be a dog fight, but we feel we’ve assembled the top team that can not only win in the West, but take home the King Trophy.”
Launius is the former owner of both Texas Wild and the Kansas City Explorers, where he first met California Dream’s resident women’s singles player, Jarmila Gajdosova. Gajdosova is a former Top 25 player making her way back up the WTA Tour rankings after bouts of injuries and inconsistencies. Under Launius’ ownership, Gajdosova led Kansas to glory in 2010, earning the Finals MVP distinction in the process.
