On to Germany

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.

  1. Again, congratulations on another victory. Thanks so much for your help getting me on the books for Croatia, where I might see your mom and dad and you again. Life is good. rita
