The quarters were played in the 45, 55, 65 & 75s today, and results were mainly true to form. In the 45s the only upset was Liz Burris/Emily Schaeffer over Anna Zimmerman/ Ann Whitney 75 in the third…and that was after Anna Z beat her partner in three sets in singles! They must be tired tonight. All the QF were good matches. Vesna McKenna took out Gerda Preissing 75 63 and Shelly Works and Mariana Hollman also advanced.
In the 55s, Sherri Bronson was stretched to three sets but won comfortably in the third, 62. Jane Mosely advanced to the semis, in straight sets for a change, taking out #7 seed B’An Gabelt. She faces Leslie Murveit (who beat Chieko Holt 3,2); Bronson plays Nichols (who beat Pat Purcell). Ruth Young/Sue Sprague from San Diego beat the 4th seeds, Holland/Kirkland/Cochran 63 76 to reach the semis against Tracy Viebrock/Carolyn Nichols; Chris Ramsower-Pearlstein/Sue Whiting face Bronson/Murveit in the semis.
In the 65s, in a minor upset, Cathie Anderson beat Judy Louie (# 5 vs #4) in straight sets. The top three seeds, Orth, Carter and Wachob, advanced in straight sets, as did the doubles seeds.
The top 4 seeds in the 75s won: deVries faces Wood, and Herrick (who beat Van Nostrand), plays Matthiessen.
The 85s had the day off in singles and the 35s seeds start play tomorrow.
