Florida’s Donna Fales of Coral Gables and Larry Turville of Naples are now part of an exclusive group of international tennis players who have led their team to an International Tennis Federation (ITF) World Cup Team Championship, and then won the singles and doubles titles the following week in the ITF World Individual Championships.
 
Fales dominated the women’s 70 division this year at the 2010 championships, never losing more than two games a set. She beat the defending world champion, Jannine Lieffrig of South Africa 6-1, 6-1, to win the singles, and combined with her Althea Gibson Cup teammate, Dori deVries of Reno, Nev., to win the doubles title over Lieffrig/Audrey Van Coller of South Africa 6-2, 6-3.
 
Turville in the men’s 60 division avenged his loss to Jorge Camina of Spain in the final after taking out the defending champion, Hans Adama Van Scheltema of the Netherlands in the semis. He combined with his Von Cramm Cup teammate, Neal Newman of Colombus, Ohio, to win the 60 doubles over Van Scheltema/Horst-Die Van De Loo of Germany, 7-6, 3-6, 6-2.
 
King Van Nostrand of Vero Beach won his 12th ITF Seniors title in Antalya in the men’s 75 division, beating Michael Van Berckel of the Netherlands in a close final, 7-5, 7-6. Van Berkel gave King a rare beating in the Cup competition a week earlier, but Van Nostrand was ready for the rematch.
