This weekend I won a tournament in Bern. I was looking for a tournament during the Christmas holiday, and the only place which had a tournament with lots of players (more than 20) was Bern. The rules were that they would make sub tournaments of 8 players. As it turned out, because of the fact that they use old ratings from October (where I am an R4), I was the first seed of the second tournament, and I easily beat all 3 players I played.
I got a trophy and instead of a prize I got a 50% discount coupon far a future participation in a MKTA tournament, not too generous. Not sure I will ever go back to that tennis club in the future.
I just got back from Bern, where I played the Qualifiers of the Swiss Championship G14. I had a tough draw because first had to play the seed #7 Matilde Tavazza, rated 6.06 UTR, but beat her 7-6 6-2, then beat Alexandra Gasser, then unfortunately in the last qualifying round lost to Tina Moser rated 6.40, she was too strong for me that day.
