Susan Wright won the gold at the 55 singles and doubles at Homewood today. She beat me up 61 61, hitting lots of winners and making only a handful of errors. The good thing about the brevity of the match was that we didn’t wear ourselves out for the doubles… Which we won 76 64 over Joanne Russell/jan Kirkland-Cochran. We were down 3-1 in both sets. In the second set, with Joanne serving at deuce we won a big point and Joanne tossed her racquet… Which resulted in a code violation and point penalty, giving us a critical break.
It was super hot and muggy today, in the 90s outside, and seemed about that hot inside… No A/C.
In the 45s Gretchen beat Anna Zimmerman 61 63. In the 3/4 playoff Shelly Works’ incredible fitness allowed her to outlast Jennifer Lyons 76 16 62. Those two used every bit of the court and at one point in the 2nd set Jennifer’s calf cramped, but soon she was out there running like a deer again.
