Belek Monday

The US teams at Belek won again today. USA Bueno Cup won 3-0 against Netherlands. Susan won 62 62 against one Annalies and then Diane won 61 62 against the other Annalies (Simons). They have hit so many lines, Susan and Diane have that their opponents have been shaking their heads and the lines have been kept free of clay. They are impressive for sure! Phyllis and I won the doubles 62 60, Phyllis played great, it was a good match.

The US Connolly Cup team had the day off. The USA Marble Cup team won 30, but Brenda Carter lost the first 4 games (!) before winning 75 63. Betty Wachob was perfect at #2 singles, not droppoing a game. Molly Hahn and Pat Keleman cleaned up in the doubles.

The men’s Crawford (70s), Von Cramm (60s) and Perry (50s) all won 30 as well. In the 70s the singles was played by Bob Duesler at 2 and Fred Farzanegan at 1; Brian Cheney (1) and Richard Johnson (2) won the Von Cramm 60s and I saw Mark Vines outhit the Finnish #1; Ross Persons played #2.

I will give an update on what happened at Manavgat later, time permitting, or go to the ITF Seniors website for all results later today.
