The Philadelphia Freedoms kept their spot atop the WTT standings with a 25-16 victory over the Vegas Rollers on Wednesday at the Greenbrier in West Virginia.

Powered by singles victories from Sofia Kenin and Taylor Fritz, and a pair of doubles victories from Frenchman Fabrice Martin, the Freedoms improved to 8-1 and stayed a game clear of the up and coming Chicago Smash heading into Thursday’s action.

Kenin and Fritz have carried a lot of the load from the Freedoms. The tandem has combined for a 7-1 singles record.

The Smash got fantastic play from Eugenie Bouchard, who prevailed in doubles and singles, plus a victory-clinching mixed doubles effort from Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Rajeev Ram (d. Lindstedt and McNally, 5-3).

For Chicago, Mattek-Sands and Bouchard have proven to be a dynamic duo: They lead the league in winning percentage in woman’s doubles at 68% (36-17).

Jack Sock and Neal Skupski won a match tiebreak to power the New York Empire to a 20-19 victory over the San Diego Aviators. New York stays in the playoff hunt, improving to 4-4 with the victory, good for third place in the current standings.
