It’s going to be a late night tonight due to morning drizzle and a packed schedule in La Jolla, so here is a late afternoon briefing.
I won my singles over Donna Drosner 62 62. Donna played well and we had some good points and games. Susan Wright and Tina Karwasky played great to advance past Colleen Ferrell and Andrea Barnes respectively. Andrea commented that Tina played particularly well today with more zip on her shots. Apparently Tina has been working extra hard at the gym.
However the match of the day in the 60s was the three hour long battle between Sherri Bronson seeded 5-8 and 4th seeded Lesley Murveit. Bronson won 60 26 63. The last set took over an hour and the points were long and grueling.
The only other upset today was Kathy Langer’s straight set win over #3 seed Carol Wood.
All other seeds in the 50, 60, 70, & 80 advanced in straight sets except possibly for Carol Gay who is still battling Carolann Castell.
Doubles is yet to be played. We play Julie David/Bronson pretty soon.
