The rules say that teams that go to the national tournament must break up the following year, but are allowed to keep three players from the nationals team. It's a shame to have to break up the team, but rules are rules.
It was a cool day in Minnesota. The GTA played doubles at a new park today, because Marie Park was in use. After trying a couple of Mendota Heights high schools and finding them filled with high school girls tennis teams practicing for the season, we found a public park empty and played a couple of hours of pretty good tennis. The geezers were tough tonight and my record was not as good as usual, but again, no one got hurt or into a fight. The move to indoor tennis is just a couple of weeks away.
I came home, had a bison burger for dinner (cooked by PP), and watched some US Open tennis on ESPN2. Venus hurt her knee and was nearly upset by a Russian woman before winning in the third set. It should be a good couple of weeks of tennis at the Open.
