Americans Emily Day and Jen Kessy will face off against the German up-and-comers Chantal Laboureur and Julia Sude at 11AM ET on Center Court.
Day/Kessy are in a must-win situation after dropping two matches this week already. This German team has a lot of momentum and confidence coming into this match, so it’s time for these Americans to dig deep. Coming off of two incredible wins this week already, the US women’s favorite Lauren Fendrick and April Ross are gunning for the German powerhouse duo Ludwig/Walkenhorst who are also undefeated in the tournament thus far. One of these teams will notch their third win of the tournament at 12PM ET while the other will have to put a mark in the loss column on Thursday.
Fresh off a huge win over the #1 team in the world on Wednesday, local Florida natives Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena take on another undefeated team in the Dutch duo of Reinder Nummerdor and Christiaan Varenhorst at 1PM ET. Both teams play a very quick paced and powerful tempo game - so this could be the match of the day! After pulling out a great win against the Spaniards on Wednesday morning, Jake Gibb and Casey Patterson have gained new momentum and hope to take that into the match against Brazil’s Evandro and Pedro. This Brazilian team has been on fire this season getting the better of this USA duo on several occasions. Look for this afternoon match to be very intense with so much on the line. Also keep an eye on Patterson’s ankle injury as that could play a part in his ability to play effective defense behind the block of Gibb.
