Marcin Named WTT MVP

Our own Marcin Matkowski and Taylor Townsend of the Philadelphia Freedoms were named recipients of the World TeamTennis MVP awards presented by Forevermark, based on their performance during the 2018 regular season of World TeamTennis presented by GEICO. Townsend and Matkowski will each receive a $7,500 bonus and a one carat diamond from Forevermark, a diamond brand from The De Beers Group of Companies.

This was Marcin’s first World TeamTennis season and we are so glad we chose him in the draft! He kept the Aviators in the playoff race until the final night of the regular season. Marcin was a doubles dynamo, teaming up with Marcus Willis to finish as the third-ranked men’s doubles team (.517) and in mixed doubles, he and Anna-Lena Groenefeld were the top team in the league (.535).

“We came up short at the end but it was a great season,” said Matkowski. “Thanks to my teammates who helped me win MVP, although I would swap the award for a place in the Finals.”

Congratulations Marcin!!
