Women’s tennis coach Gigi Fernandez and partner Rosalyn Nideffer won a pair of matches before falling in the third round of the Ladies 35 and Over doubles tournament at Wimbledon.
Fernandez and Nideffer’s run ended in the third round in a 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 loss to Mima Jausovec and Jana Novotna.
Novotna, like Fernandez, was one of a small group of formerly dominant women’s stars — including long-time Fernandez foe, Martina Navratilova — to have success at this year’s Championships.
The pair easily took care of Gretchen Magers and Wendy Turnbull (6-1, 6-0) and Carling Bassett-Seguso and Hana Mandlikova (6-2, 6-0) in the first two rounds.
Four of Fernandez’ 17 Grand Slam titles came on the grass courts at Wimbledon.

There were stretches where we played […]
