m75 gold

The USA has won the Bitsy Grant Cup for the last six years, but in 2014 it was deservedly Australia's turn as the team played great tennis all week and finished on a high to win gold.

In the opening singles, Bruce Rehn struggled against his opponent to lose 3 and 3. Bob Howes redeemed the position with a straight set win, 3 and 3. In the deciding doubles Bob teamed with John Mansfield to run out clear winners, 0 and 2. This team finished the top of the thirteen team competition.
