Pensacola Day 4: Marcinkowska wins 40 singles and doubles

Brief update tonight.
 
Renata Marcinkowska played a phenomenal 2nd set (to go with a merely excellent first set) to beat Hyacinth Yorke in the final of the 40 clay courts…then was looking at the numbers 40 on the inscription under the gold ball…She then doubled her gold haul for the day by winning the 40 doubles with Mary Dailey, their 2nd gold ball together. They beat Fran Chandler/Susan Boyer 60 76 (5). Boyer/Chandler mixed up serving and volleying with playing 2 back in the 2nd set, which led to more errors by their opponents. But on match point there was no mistake, Renata hit a killer overhead to seal the win.
 
Hollman took third in doubles over Chandler and won the doubles bronze with Anna Zimmerman over Stacy Williams/Yorke.
 
The 50 final is between Nichols/Bronson and the doubles between Bronson/Wheatley and Bezmalinovich/Nichols.
