OUR LADIES TAKE SILVER IN MIAMI BEACH!

Silver medalists Dedri and Lindi Prinsloo (twins) (RSA) seeded no. 2 lost, to Emanuela Falleti and Valeria Madaro (Italy) in the Women’s 40+ doubles finals in the ITF Young Seniors World Individual Championships in Miami Beach, USA yesterday.   The Prinsloo twins were defending their 2017 title earned at the Young Seniors World Champs in Cape Town but this time it was on clay!  

 

Our other two silver medalists, Jacqueline Booth and Ohmar Fernandes (RSA) seeded no. 2, lost to Valentina Padula and Silvia Sanna (Italy) 6/1 6/2 in the Women’s 45+ Doubles Final. 

Reaching the finals is an outstanding achievement, considering our players’ lack of experience on the clay surface!   Congratulations to all four finalists and well played!
