Brenda Carter Blogs From Seniors Tournament In Turkey

Brenda Carter

Well, Friday at AliBey was a beautiful day. However, the report from the Kitty Godfree Cup is not the report I would like to be sending. 
We had a tough day at the office, but we gave it a valiant effort. We were playing Great Britain and we knew they were strong. Betty started the day and won her match in two tough sets. Then I played for three hours and lost in three sets. 
The doubles would decide who would go to the finals. Betty and Judy played the doubles, but lost. The Brits played very well and got the last point, so they move to the finals against France, who beat Germany in the same fashion, having to win the doubles to make it to the finals. We will play Germany tomorrow and they're tough, too, but we'll give it our best shot.
Losing did not keep us from eating. We joined the 60s women's and men's teams, the 65s men's team, the 70s women's team and spouses/companions for dinner down at the beach restaurant. It was a beautiful evening.
We, as a team, are disappointed, but we all know we tried as hard as we could. The USA is making a great showing as we are in the semifinals or finals of many of the 10 cups that are being contested this week.
