WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., October 29, 2009 -- The USTA has announced the players who will represent the United States at the 29th ITF Super-Seniors World Team Championships hosted by Tennis Seniors Australia. The top American tennis players in age groups from 60-80 for men and 60-75 for women will compete, Nov. 2-7, in Perth, Australia.

The ITF Seniors/Super-Seniors World Team Championships is the most coveted team event on the ITF Seniors circuit.
