The USTA League Tennis 9.0 Super Senior Team acknowledges the Wisconsin Tennis Association support of the team and their travels with this beautiful note. 
 “On behalf of the 9.0 Super Seniors Women's team from Wisconsin, I want to
 thank the Wisconsin Tennis Association for its financial support of our trip
 to represent the Midwest Section at the National Championships.
 Although we had several close matches, we seemed to lose more of the third
 set tiebreakers than our opponents. Our ability to use the wind and sun to
 our advantage was surpassed by teams such as Northern California and Texas
 who were in our flight.
 But we all had a good time and were very grateful for your help. We used
 the funds to pay our registration fees, for our gifts to our opponents, and
 for some reduction in our hotel bills.
Everyone gave their best and represented the section well.
Thanks again to WTA for supporting Wisconsin players at all levels.”
