Tuesday was Day 4 of the ITF Masters Championships in Mallorca and I finally was able to play a match! The rain stopped and it was a beautiful day, but the tournament is still pretty far behind, with the Men’s 65s only into the round of 32 with four days left in the tournament.
I played Lyn Robinson, the #4 player on the Australian gold medal Cup team and won. For Lyn this trip is her first to Europe, and she’s been playing masters tennis for about five years. She’s from Melbourne and much prefers doubles to singles. I play Karien Theeuwes from Netherlands, one of my German teammates, tomorrow morning.
Bunnie Jackson, my doubles partner, finished her suspended match from yesterday by winning 12 straight points (she was up 60 3/2), and then beat Inge Pils from Austria in straight sets. She plays Ros Balodis tomorrow.
Susan won too and plays Katrin Dippner tomorrow.
In doubles, Tracey Thompson/Jenny Cerff won as did Carolyn Lane/Betty Michel. Tim Wright had to play the #7 seed, Martin Cornish in Sa Coma, but lost.
We all have either doubles or mixed or both tomorrow in addition to the singles for Bunnie, Susan and myself.
We play at 9am, so that’s all for now.
