Into the Doubles Final at World Championships

Robin Harris and I won our 9:30 am doubles semi today over Aussies Susie Ellis/Judy Buzza. We played through intermittent rain showers.

Susan Wright and Pat Medrado had just finished their warm up when it began to rain, then pour around 1pm. Susan had never played in the rain so lucky for her it rained too hard to continue outdoors. They ended up playing on fast indoor clay in Ulm. Susan and Pat won 62 63 over Lyn Mortimer and Sabine Schmidt.

Diane Barker played Regina Marsikova and was down 63 3-0 when it rained. After play resumed, Marsikova won the set 61.

Mark Vines was up a set in the 60 singles but pulled a calf muscle at 1/0 in the second and was down 4/2 when I left. It poured shortly after. Update: Vines won 63 64 and plays German, Norbert Henn. Henn beat Danny Waldman in two close sets.

Henn and Waldman are into the doubles final though with a win over Aussies Steve Myer/Mike Ford.

Tom Coulter from the USA is in the doubles final with Anders Jarryd.

Waldman/Mary Dailey and Vicki Buholz/Ross Persons both lost in the mixed 55 semis today.

Jenny Klitch/Andrea Rice fell in the semis, in a tight match.

Results and draws.
