Glasgow Open 2008

12-13 April 2008, Kelvingrove

Bruce Rannie retained the Glasgow Open cup with five wins out of five, with Jane Shorten runner-up.  The field of seven, missing eight-time winner John Surgenor because of work commitments, and Campbell Morrison because of a wrist injury caused by ski-ing in Scotland, enjoyed surprisingly bright if cold April weather, slow early-season courts, and the usual bonhomie.
