The captains’ meetings were held today in Austria and Czech Republic. The USA was seeded #1 in the seven Cups for which it’s the defending champion: Von Cramm (M60), Britannia (M65), Bitsy Grant Cup (M75), Gardnar Mulloy Cup (M80), Alice Marble Cup (W60), Althea Gibson Cup (W70) and Queens’ Cup, (W75). USA is seeded #2 in the Kitty Godfree Cup (W65), Doris Hart Cup (W80) and Jack Crawford Cup (M70).
The captains’ meetings (where the draws were done) and opening ceremonies were held today in Villach (also at the other venues, but I’m in Villach). Each lasts about an hour and the social schedule and the information on how the Cups work (practice schedule etc) were given to the captains. There was a low key opening ceremony followed by a nice cocktail party.
I also moved hotels today, it was a long day!
