Black Friday for Chilean tennis
It proved a Friday to forget as Chilean tennis hopes bit the dust in various parts of the world.
Nottingham – Daniela Seguel and Cecilia Costa gave a good fight in their women´s doubles semi-final against top seeds Naomi Broady (Great Britain) and Renata Voracova (Czech Republic).
However, the third seeds eventually bowed out 7-5, 6-4 in the Nottingham ITF event. Broady and Voracova will play the unseeded British pair Jocelyn Rae and Anna Smith in today ´s final.
Meanwhile, David Fleming´s fine run in the Future 6 in Egypt came to a halt in the quarter-finals. Fleming (1,469) lost 6-4, 6-1 to Morocco´s Yassine Idmbarek (748).
Bastian Malla´s efforts in the Future 6 at Boynton Beach, Florida, finally caught up with him. The 17-year-old had won six matches to reach the quarter-finals.
However, Malla (734) was brushed aside by Germany´s Yannick Maden (685) 6-1, 6-0.
