USA Margaret Court Cup Team Takes Bronze in Cape Town

Cape Town, South Africa 

It took seven hours, seven sets played, overcoming cramping, windy conditions and their determined French opponents, but USA edged France 2/1 to medal in that division for the first time since 2014. 

Jennifer Dawson started fast but ended up in a dogfight against a persistent retriever, and the tricky wind before winning 61 46 64. Julie Cass was then edged by another steady and quick Frenchwoman 64 76. 

So it came down to the doubles played brilliantly by Julie Cass/Debbie Spence-Nasim. They won 60 63. Nancy Hilliard gave Debbie an excellent warm up. 


The USA Women’s 35 team finished 4th, the 40s 6th. 


The Italia Cup team beat Canada today to finish 9th. 


The Trabert Cup team finished yesterday. 

The Dubler Cup fell 3/0 to Great Britain.
