The New York Sportimes were the second best team in the 2012 WorldTeamTennis season, and with a 9-5 record, the Sportimes qualified for the 2012 WTT Playoffs. On Saturday, Sept. 15, the Sportimes will face off against the defending champion Washington Kastles for the Eastern Conference Championship. The Sportimes will look to end the Kastles unprecedented 30-match winning streak and advance to the Finals to play for the WTT Championship for the first time since 2010.

Individually, due to her phenomenal play and competitive spirit, Hall of Famer Martina Hingis was named the 2012 WTT Female MVP and the Best Women's Singles Player in 2012. Other Sportimes players were recognized by WorldTeamTennis for their strong showings in 2012 as well, as Jesse Witten was named fourth Best Men's Singles Player, Ashley Harkleroad won the award for Second Best Women's Doubles Player and Robert Kendrick was named Third Best Mixed-Doubles Player.

Collectively, the Sportimes are focused on their quest for the King Trophy.
