The ITF Seniors World Championships begins Saturday September 4, 2021 in Umag, Croatia for the 50/55/60 age divisions.
There are a number of USA players seeded, particularly in the 55 & 60 divisions. The ITF does not appear to have made many deviations from the rankings in doing its seedings despite the pandemic which pretty much limited play in high level ITF tournaments to Europe this year. Though to be fair, the 2019 results are still on everyone’s records.
Jenny Klitch is seeded #2 in 50 doubles (with Andrea Rice), #2 in 55 mixed (with Tom Colton, USA) and #3 in 55 singles.
Rice is also seeded 12 in 50 singles. Colton is seeded #1 in 55 doubles (with Anders Jarryd)
