U.S. Wins 4 Titles at ITF Super-Seniors, Floridians on 2nd Place Teams
American teams won four of the nine titles at the 38th International Tennis Federation (ITF) Super-Seniors World Team Championships which concluded in late September in Umag, Croatia.
The U.S. women won two titles and the men two, including the men’s 85-and-over division title for the second year in a row after its debut last year.
The tournament is the senior tennis equivalent of the Davis Cup and Fed Cup competitions, with top American tennis players representing their country in the 65-, 70-, 75-, 80- and 85-and-over age groups.
The U.S. brought home the titles in the Kitty Godfree Cup (Women’s 65 & over), Doris Hart Cup (Women’s 80 & over), Britannia Cup (Men’s 65 & over) and Men’s 85 Cup. The United States has now won the Doris Hart Cup for four straight years, matching the Canadian record since the competition was first played in 2011.
Florida players were Fred Drilling (Estero) on the second-place U.S. 75-and-over team, Betty Wachob (Panama City) on the second-place 70-and-over squad, and Geoffrey Moore (Boynton Beach) on the ninth place 70-and-over team.
