WATCH #GameSetMattek: Wozniacki Gets Very Competitive with David Lee

Defending US Open doubles champion Bethanie Mattek-Sands has long been a charismatic and beloved member of the traveling tennis circus. But during Wimbledon, she suffered a major injury that even threatened to end her career. While Bethanie recovers, she’s here in New York with #GameSetMattektaking us behind the scenes with exclusive access to many members of the tennis community.

“So, you’ve made like, 600 finals this year already,” Mattek-Sands said with a smile to start her conversation with Caroline Wozniacki. “There’s not even that many weeks in a year, but you somehow have made more finals.”

The number is six, actually, but who’s counting? The world No. 5 has played six championship matches thus far in 2017, but she’s yet to capture a title. (She has 25 for her career.)

In this segment, the Dane told Bethanie how she maintains her consistency week in and week out and, more importantly, how competitive she is (very) with her boyfriend, NBA player David Lee. She’s been working on her hoops game, too, but it needs some work.
