The 28 years old Vandeweghe represents San Diego Aviators in the World Team Tennis Tournament. An unofficial event takes place at the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.

“World Team Tennis Provides Space to Move Around” – Coco Vandeweghe
Former World number nine player further said on her playing the World Team Tennis event, “World Team Tennis being more of an exhibition environment makes it a lot easier and friendly and gives us time to kind of adapt back to playing.” Besides, she also finds herself lucky and fortunate to be in San Diego, which provides her space to adjust and adapt and move around.
American also plans to participate in the home Grand Slam as she hasn’t made any money in the lockdown due to the suspension of Tennis fixtures. “I need to financially make some money and go play. I don’t think I have quite the say-so of being able to say, ‘Nope.” said Coco Vandeweghe.
