Jane Lutz, 90, played six sets of tennis today to win the USTA 90 hard court singles & doubles titles. Rita Price also played six sets of tennis today and came away with a singles silver and doubles gold for her efforts.
Jane won the singles 26 75 64 over Price and Jane and Rita won the doubles 75 46 63 over Janet Hubbard/Pat Wiedenmann.
I repeat…Jane is 90, Rita is 92 and they played for over four hours on hard courts no less.

Having people who are 90 play two matches in one day shows a complete lack of responsibility.
There was rain scheduled for most of the next day. The tournament otherwise had them playing singles and doubles on alternate days.
