Into the finals in Karlovy Vary

I played my final round robin match today and won over a very nice recreational player. As she said, she plays for fun, not seriously, though she was playing mixed later and looked pretty serious then.

I warmed up early..7am! with Heide Orth and then warmed  up Ellen Neumann. Heide had a tough match with Sylvie Galfard-Kirsten from France, losing 63 75. Sylvie is a very good player and good mover. I went back to the hotel for breakfast and then walked to the club. It was a nice sunny day and the countryside is lovely.

I also got to hit with Leanne Scott from Australia for about an hour and then played my match around 2pm. It only lasted 30 minutes, but gave me time to scout my opponent for tomorrow. She won the first set 61 and received a retirement as her opponent had vertigo.
