Williams fails to will Kastles to home win
In a speech to the crowd before the match, King said bringing a franchise to the District was the realization of a lifelong dream.
“This has been on my master list for a long time,” the Tennis Hall of Famer said.
The Kastles formed in the District with the help of team owner and venture capitalist Mark Ein, whom city leaders initially laughed at for his vision of placing a tennis stadium in the heart of the city. His idea became a reality last night, with charged fans enjoying the breezy summer evening in a temporary facility built in the shadows of some of the city´s newest office buildings. Tickets for the event sold out almost immediately. Ein managed to find 100 additional seats over the past week. They sold out online within 15 minutes.
“It´s turned out pretty much as good as I could have expected,” Ein said. “We wanted to build a really unique and special experience for people in Washington, and I think that´s what they´re going to leave with.”
