The USA men’s 60 team was off today except for a doubles match. Ross Persons/Wes Cash won a three set doubles against Mexico to narrow their loss to 2/1. More photos from the match with Mexico (courtesy of the Mullanes). Brazil beat Mexico today in the Von Cramm Cup so the USA still has a chance of winning it’s group if it does well against Brazil, that is if the team beats Brazil.
All USA teams are in action tomorrow in the final day of round robin play.
