Update July 25: The Washington Kastles waited out four hours worth of weather delays and played through a 23-19 overtime to defeat the St. Louis Aces in this Sunday's World Team Tennis finals on Daniel Island.

Not only did the Washington Kastles win the title, but they became the first undefeated team in the 36-year history of the WTT to do so.
