The Breakers will learn their opponent for Saturday’s final in Carlsbad on Wednesday. It will likely be the defending champion Aviators, who would reach the finals with a victory over Washington, the Breakers winning eight or more games against Philadelphia or the New York Empire winning 17 or fewer games against Philadelphia.
Teymuraz Gabashvili won two sets Tuesday, including a 5-2 victory over Sam Groth in the final set, men’s singles, concluding the third consecutive victory for the Breakers (8-5).
Gabashvili and Ken Skupski defeated Groth and Robert Lindstedt, 5-1, in men’s doubles, the third set, increasing the Breakers’ lead to 14-7 at Breakers Stadium at Palisades Tennis Club.
The Breakers got their other victory in the second set, women’s doubles, when Yanina Wickmayer and Andreja Klepac defeated Madison Brengle and Anastasia Rodionova, 5-1.
The last-place Kastles (4-9) got victories in the first set, women’s singles, when Brengle defeated Wickmayer, 5-4, and the fourth, mixed doubles, when Lindstedt and Rodionova defeated Skupski and Klepac, 5-4.
The loss was the sixth straight for the Kastles.
The Breakers will conclude the regular season Wednesday by playing host to Philadelphia.
