Today the weather was quite nice for tennis, 70s and mostly dry. The final was moved up to 2nd match, and we were on about 10:30. I won 60 60 against Julia Smutney, the 2nd seed. She had a slight problem with her hamstring…she was the recipient of a lot of drop shots, since she was complaining about it a lot. Plus it is red clay we were playing on.
Petra Kruger won the 65s over 70s world champion Sophia Garaguly 63 60.
Now I am on the train to Munich, and from there go to Baden-Baden. The weather looks wet in Germany, good thing I strung up a racquet with nylon for this trip.
Today there was a triathlon that went past one end of the tennis club and past my hotel.. A swim in the Worthersee, then the bike race, then running. Everyone looked really fit, I suppose that’s a given. It made getting a taxi a bit tricky, but I managed.
I ran into another American, Hugh Stewart here today, waiting for his doubles match. He plays in the 80s and has won a gold ball in the past with my dad. He’s in the photo with Jan Johns below.
