2018 Florida Cup

According to Mark Taylor, “The 15th annual Florida Cup matches were hosted by University Park Country Club and director of tennis Jason Grose April 7-8 in Sarasota with the West squad winning the Cup for the 11th time by the score of 34-16. The West team won nine of ten age groups; won nine of ten doubles matches; and swept the 80’s division led by captain Gordon Hammes. Individual winners that went 3-0 on the weekend included Mark Thompson (40’s); Hartmut Liebel (55’s) and Fred Drilling (75’s).”

“The East 50’s team of Jordan Klingsberg and Lorne Goldberg won the group 5-0 and secured the only East doubles victory; winning 6-3 in the third over the West team of Coleman/Steyn. The Florida Cup hosted a record tying 64 players (including 22 first timers) as the event now travels back to the east coast in 2019 with the East team attempting to win on home clay. The West leads the overall series 11-4.”
