NEWPORT BEACH — Marie-Eve Pelletier displayed plenty of positive body language Wednesday night at The Tennis Club Newport Beach.
The Newport Beach Breakers' three-year veteran pumped her fist a number of times during the World Team Tennis match. She and Travis Rettenmaier won in mixed doubles, then she and Anne Keothavong won in women's doubles as the Breakers took control of the match.
Pelletier and her teammates were finally able to smile.
Ending an eight-match losing streak was sweet for the Breakers, who topped Springfield, 21-14. They won their first match since a victory at Kansas City July 8. It doesn't sound like a long time, until one realizes that the whole WTT regular season lasts just 17 days.
Pelletier knows where she plans to go on Thursday.
"We haven't had a chance to spend a lot of time here this year," Pelletier said. "Normally I get to go to Fashion Island and spend some of my money, but this year nope. I've missed that. Maybe [Thursday] I'll get a chance to head over there in the afternoon."
