Bromley GCWC #04: Day 2 Blocks

Updated on Sunday, February 26, 2017 at 04:43PM by Registered CommenterDylan

It was an absolutely beautiful warm day during this last week of summer here in Melbourne. USA players had a good day on the lawns with Sherif Abdelwahab posting his third win (and currently in the middle of his fourth match at the time of this entry [He won -- DG]).

Both have been won by the RoW by a narrow margin of 11 matches to 10.
