SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Martina Hingis led Washington to its fourth straight World TeamTennis title and fifth in six years Sunday, beating Olga Govortsova 5-2 in singles in the Kastles’ 25-13 victory over the Springfield Lasers.

The Kastles tied the record for consecutive titles set by Sacramento in 2000.

Hingis, the 33-year-old former top-ranked Swiss player, was selected the MVP of the finals

“It was a great day here in Springfield for me, obviously with getting the finals MVP,” Hingis said. “I don’t know if I have been as nervous before in my career with playing in the finals for my team, because you have no time to miss anything. Everything is quick. You have to keep it sweet!”

Washington swept the five matches.

Hingis teamed with Anastasia Rodionova to beat Govortsova and Liga Dekmeijere-Thomas 5-1 in women’s doubles, and joined Leander Paes in a 5-4 victory over Govortsova and Ross Hutchins in mixed doubles.

Bobby Reynolds beat Michael Russell 5-4 in men’s singles, and teamed with Paes to top Russell and Hutchins 5-2 in doubles.
