Practicing in the Sun

First of all the draws are finally posted: http://www.itftennis.com/seniors/tournaments/tournament/info.aspx?tournamentid=1100033255.  I am in a round robin group of three players; the #2 and #3 seeds, Nora Blom and Encarnacion Gomez-Ruiz are in a round robin group of four. I have a bye tomorrow and then play on Tuesday and Wednesday and if I win both matches, again on Thursday against the winner of Nora’s group.

 

Today started out a bit dicey weather-wise. It rained till after midnight and was drizzling as Bridget and I optimistically headed towards the courts. However, the courts here, dry quickly and they weren’t puddled at all, just a bit damp at the baseline. After we swept them they were fine and we hit for a while, then I played a local player, Michael, a set. After that we had lunch at the club and the sun was starting to come out. We ran into Michael Beautyman, an American and later on Kar Liang, a Canadian who lives in Switzerland.

After lunch the sun was out in full force. We were able to get in more practice and see the draws finally. All the 60s players except me play tomorrow, so I’ll be scouting.

It was a quiet day in town, all stores except restaurants and the convenience store at the train station were closed as is common in Europe on Sundays.

  1. What lovely backgrounds with mountains in view of the courts, which would distract this “hacker”, & to see friends and Mom & Dad’s friends, as well! Good luck with your matches and weather!
