HTA ITF FUTURES 10000 $ (F3)

First week of December is traditionally reserved for the biggest international tennis event in our Academy. Once again, a tournament from ITF Pro series (Men Futures 10000 $) has been organized with big hope that someone of our best players could repeat big successes of Petros Chrysochos and grab home-ground title and 18 ATP points. Being on studies in USA, Petros was unable to participate this year so thus our biggest hopes were laid on our best player currently - Menelaos Efstathiou. Unfortunatelly, the unlucky draw made Melios first round exit, falling to No.4 seeded Miedler (AUT) 1:6 2:6. Something similar happened to Nicholas Campbell, who met in the first round No.3 seeded Neuchrist (AUT) and, after very brave and good resistance he lost the opener with the final score 4:6 4:6.

Neither third Cypriot represenative in MD, Eleftherios Neos has progressed into second round - Harris (GBR) was better in three sets 6:2 5:7 4:6.

In category doubles our players have recorded much better result. Melios, partnering Neos went to SF round where they fall to Austrian pair Miedler / Neuchrist 1:6 1:6.
