In the 45s, Julie Thu was the clear winner, beating Francesca Lao in the final. Nancy Hilliard, comprehensively beaten by Thu in the semis, edged top seed Amanda Parson Siegel in three sets to take the bronze. Amanda, who had a four hour match the day before definitely got her clay court practice in. Lao/Parson Siegel had better luck in doubles, advancing to the final in straight sets where they will face Deanna Vroman/Karen Rembert.
