I played Rosa Maria Togores Colum. We played on a court that faced East/west, good at noon, but not so great at 6pm. After she wrapped herself up (two patella braces and a back brace), put up the singles sticks (and apparently no one else did this, as you can see in the photo below), I chose the side where I would not be staring into the sun. Rosa started strongly. Ripping a winner off my serve, but I ended up finding her backhand and won 60,60. I play the second seed, Christian Derykre in the final tomorrow or Saturday.
Heide Orth had a second day off from playing and below she is with her husband Ludwig. Heide said she had to wear her summer dresses here because Germany had no summer.
