American Lisa Bonder, a 1984 French Open quarterfinalist and a former top 10 player, debuted on the seniors circuit last week in Florida.
Bonder, now 54, lost just four games in winning the singles title – in the 40s category.
She went 2-1 in the 30s round-robin and teamed up with former pro, Jenny Klitch, to win the doubles title in the 50s.
Bonder – listed as “Bonder-Kreiss” as a pro, and “Bonder-Kerkorian” in this seniors debut, has quite the history off-court.
But clearly, once you have the skills, they never leave you.
