Queen's Cup Updates

We did it! Our talented 1 & 2 singles players once again came through, winning both matches so my partner and i did not get to play today. But we were not complaining!
I nearly had a Heart attack when Dorothy fell  front on on the nasty red clay early in the first set after Dori had won her match in straight sets. A time out was called while she cleaned up all the blood on her knees, then she pulled herself together and won the set. She was up 5-3, match point in the second and watched it slip away, losing it 7-5.
More heart palpitations on my part.
A half of a banana, several sips of water and she went out and won the third set  6-3. Whew !
The Queen's Cup isn't really a cup, but a beautiful and heavy silver tray. We get to keep it for a year, the USTA will engrave our names on it, and we will take it to Austria in 2013 to try to win it again!
This has been an incredible experience in a beautiful place.
Thanks to all who were rooting for us and to the USTA for providing the opportunity to play for our country.

Kathy Langer and her doubles partner, Lyn Tietz , were winners against the New Zealand team after their teammates easily won their singles matches in their first match of the ITF World Team Championships.  their next opponent is Australia. Yesterday was a day off for the #1 seed so they were able to travel to truffle country and enjoy the quaint small town of Montovon, which is famous for the black and white delicacies.

Opening ceremonies were exciting and colorful. Kathy carried the flag for the US. 188 countries are represented in Novigrad and Umag, Croatia.
One down and 3 to go!
