SANCHEZ SELECTED BY NY EMPIRE IN WTT DRAFT

Agent Atleta client Maria Sanchez was selected by the New York Empire World Team Tennis franchise in the 2017 WTT Draft, which took place March 14, 2017 on site at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, CA.  The Empire demonstrated their desire to select Sanchez by taking her with the team's second round pick.  

Sanchez is expected to primarily play women's doubles and mixed doubles for the Empire this season (July 16-Aug 2).  A veteran of World Team Tennis, Sanchez was the Rookie of the Year in 2012.  

The Empire previously announced that all home matches will be played on Court 17 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, home of the U.S. Open.

"I'm really excited to have been selected by the New York Empire in the WTT Draft," Sanchez said.  "I love New York City, and there are few venues in tennis that compare with the  USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.  I can't wait to join my teammates this summer and experience the energy and atmosphere on Court 17 as we look to compete for a league championship."  

Sanchez will be joined on the Empire's roster by Eugenie Bouchard, Mardy Fish, John Isner, and Kirsten Flipkens.  Tennis Hall of Famer Gigi Fernandez will make her WTT debut as the coach of the Empire.
