Breakers Sign Jacqueline Cako, Klepac Out with InjuryJuly 31, 2018
Cako is scheduled to make her Breakers and WTT debut July 31st against the San Diego Aviators and will also play the last two home matches for the Breakers in 2018.
NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. (July 30, 2018) – The Orange County Breakers have announced that Jacqueline Cako, the two time NCAA All-American from Arizona State, has signed with the team and will be activated immediately in time for tomorrow's match against San Diego. Cako, who hit a career high WTA doubles ranking of world No. 84 earlier this year, replaces Andreja Klepac on the active roster. Klepac is out for the remainder of the 2018 WTT season due to injury.
"I am really excited to play for the reigning WTT Champions, the Orange County Breakers,” said Cako. “It is a really cool opportunity that came up and I hope I can step in and help the team make this final playoff push a successful one. I am a former college player and I have always loved the team format. I can't wait to get out and play in front of the home crowd tomorrow night."
The Breakers have been bit by the injury bug this season and have lost Stephane Robert, Sam Querrey, and Andreja Klepac for the remainder of the 2018 WTT season. After tomorrow's match, Cako will be the 12th Breakers player to feature for the team this season, which is a franchise record.
“We are thrilled we were able to acquire a player of Jacqueline's caliber in such short notice,” said Breakers general manager Allen Hardison. “The injuries have been tricky to navigate this year but Jacqueline is a great player and she will bring a lot of energy to our team. I know our fans will enjoy watching her play and I am confident she has what it takes to push us to the WTT Finals.”
The Breakers take on the San Diego Aviators July 31st at 6:00pm in a match with high playoff implications. Tickets to see Cako and the Breakers can be purchased at BreakersTennis.com or by calling (949) 434-4560. The match will also be streamed live and for free on WTT.tv starting at 6:00pm.
