It was really a “Super Saturday” for the USA in Umag. See the results from the ITF Press Release below.
The men’s 65 doubles final was incredibly exciting and well played. So was the men’s 80 doubles.
I’ll be posting photos in the next few days, probably on Tuesday.
Please find below the final results from the 2012 ITF Super-Seniors World Team Championships in Umag and Novigrad, Croatia after the first day of finals in 8 of the 10 Cups.
