According to the Washington Kastles, Venus Williams is set to return to the team this summer for her fourth season.

The Kastles look forward to adding another season to their back-to-back undefeated record. The four-time Olympic gold medalist, played a primary role in the team's achievement of being 32-0 overall since 2010.

Williams earned the 2012 WTT Finals MVP honors for her play in Charleston, South Carolina and is coming back for more.

The rest of Washington's 2013 team will be determined during the Mylan WTT Roster Draft on Tuesday, March 12 at Noon.

Sister Serena Williams' availability for the WTT season July 7-24 is uncertain as she seeks to defend her Wimbledon title June 24- July 7.

A big name drafted in Tuesday's Marquee Draft was former World No. 1 Andy Roddick by the Springfield Lasers. Known for his model of consistency throughout his career on tour, the Lasers hope to bring the Kastles winning run to a stop.

Other selections in the draft include World No. 1 doubles team of Bob and Mike Bryan (Texas), 2013 Australian Open semifinalist Sloane Stephens (Philadelphia) and top-ranked American men Sam Querrey (Sacramento) and Mardy Fish (Sacramento).

Venus Williams' highly anticipated return dates and opponents to Kastles Stadium at the Warf will be revealed the Week of March 4 in the Kastles schedule.
