Nicole Gibbs, the 2016 World TeamTennis Female MVP, is returning to the Breakers for her fourth straight season with the franchise. Gibbs is scheduled to play for the Breakers on July 15 and July 16, both of which are home matches in Orange County.
“We are very excited to have a big fan favorite come back and help us kick off the 2018 season,” said Breakers coach Rick Leach. “Nicole is great in the format, a very quick starter and has great energy on the court. Her WTT experience will help us a lot in the early part of our season.”
