Diane Fishburne is in the semis against Betty Michel and Pat Medrado, who beat Susan today is playing Chris French (who beat Marianne Robertson). However, Marianne and Susan are in the doubles final and are the heavy favorites.
In 45 doubles, it’s an All American affair, with Myke Loomis/Mariana Hollman vs Fran Chandler/Mary Dailey.
As I predicted when I first saw the draw (have to be right some of the time :-)…it’s an All American final in the 55s, Sherri Bronson vs Joanne Russell. Sherri took out the top seed, Lynn Mortimer of Australia in 3 sets while Joanne lost only a game in beating another Aussie, Helen Worland.
The French player who took out Myke and Tracy earlier in the week continued her success against the Americans in the 45s, beating Mariana Hollman in three sets. Mariana though did well to force a third set, coming back from 03 down in the 2nd set to win it.
Amy Alcini lost in 2 tough sets also in the 40s.
Phil Landauer and Tom Smith had a match point in the third set tiebreaker only to see the serve hit the line and take a wicked hop. They lost 76 in the third.
There are 3 Americans in the 50 men’s singles tomorrow, Ross Persons and then Egan Adams (who plays Mike Fedderly).
