Writing from the Munich Airport, Munich, Germany
The USA was seeded #1 in eight of the nine cups in Umag. The Jack Crawford Cup team, Men’s 70s, was not only not seeded #1, it wasn’t seeded at all, and lost to #4 Denmark 3/0 today. Brent Abel, playing #1 for the men’s 70s team (and captain) is shown below.
All women’s teams and the men’s 65, 75, 80 and 85 teams all advanced without the loss of a set, though the women’s 70s team had a scare at #2 singles before Molly Hahn won in three sets and Carol Wood/Burnett Herrick also split sets in the women’s 80s before winning the match tiebreak (used only in the 80s and 85s divisions) 10-5.
The men’s 65 won 3/0 over NZL.
