Sunday in Font de Sa Cala, Spain
The Super Senior World Team Championships started today in Font de Sa Cala, but of course the USA teams along with many others were missing.
I watched some of the Men’s 65s Netherlands vs Italy #1 singles which was a good match…the Italian started strongly against Frits Raijmakers…winning the first set…I left for lunch just as the third set was beginning. Frits had turned the match around by then, winning the second set 76 and the Italian was tiring…and eventually he retired at 41 down. Italy had won the #2 singles so the match came down to the doubles, which the Netherlands won. It was a tough start to the event for both teams.
Later in the afternoon I hit with Steve Dance and Tina Karwasky, and saw quite a few players walking around after their matches. It’s better really to just ignore the fact that the team event is going on.
