MARTIN A SEMIFINALIST AT SENIORS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
May 3, 2014

Canadian Andreanne Martin is through to the semifinals of the women’s over-45 event at the ITF Seniors World Individual Championships following a 6-0, 4-0 ret. victory over American Jenny Klitch in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on Friday.

Martin, who earlier ousted the tournament’s No. 2 seed in the second round, will take on Karim Strohmeier-Merino of Peru for a place in the final. Martin is also one of just four teams left in the over-45 mixed doubles draw, as she and fellow Canadian Joachim Nierfeld defeated American-Argentine pair Margaret Lumia and Calos Gomez Diaz 4-6, 6-1, 10-4 to earn a place in the semifinals where they will challenge No. 8-seeded Dutch duo Annemiek Wissink and Sander Groen.

A few other Canadians are also in strong contention for medals in doubles. No. 4-seeded all-Canadian duo Jennifer Bishop and Benjamin Woo are in the over-40 mixed doubles semifinals and will next face No. 2 seeds Piret Ilves of Estonia and Christian Findeisen of Germany. Denis Dumas and British partner Sue Webb are in the quarter-finals of the over-50 mixed doubles draw and will play opposite No. 8 seeds Erika Smith and Rick Leach of the United States on Saturday.
