USA Wins Maureen Connolly Cup Over Great Britain

Diane and Jack Barker

This is championship day on the grounds. Although some of the USA teams have been eliminated from the medal rounds there are a number of USA teams playing for medals including the ladies 55s.
And the ladies 55, seeded No. 1, came through. USA is playing second seed Great Britain.
Susan Wright, playing No. 2,, started strong winning the first set 6-1 with the lead 5-2 in the second set before the winds and the British lady got stronger. The 5-2 advantage disappeared before Susan was able to fight off six set points against her to win the second set tiebreaker 14-12.
I was playing No. 1 singles again, closed out the match winning 6-1, 6-0.
Unfortunately the ITF decided not to play the doubles since the championship had been decided in the singles. Our  No. 3 and No. 4 player were disappointed since they did not get to play today.
USA is happy to be the winner of women's 55 for 2013!!!
