There is no one stopping these two. If the tennis players of Ciutadella, Òscar and lex Mesquida, have been in the United States for some time, whether in Europe or in the last five years, showing their class in the tennis world, now, forming a couple, they decide to launch themselves – and what a way – tennis the beach. And at its first official presentation, their names were already transferred over the United States. Tandem made its debut at the Ciutadella Tennis Club for the first time in its first beach tennis tournament and did so in a big way, taking part in the ITF circuit; Specifically, in those held on Singer Island, in Florida, where the Mesquidas managed to stand in the final.
Oscar and Alex Mesquida, enrolled in recent years in their North American universities, started in the first round by defeating the pair, Darwin Barrotra (Venezuela) and Mart Gartma (Estonia), by 6/3. Subsequently, the pair’s second round would arrive from the Menorcans, facing the No. 1 seed in the Florida Championships; Ignacio de Elía (Argentina) – currently in the world 200 – along with his partner, ex-world 50, David Sickmen (USA), ahead of those who called the bell, narrowly winning 7/6 1/6 10/7. Already in the semi-finals against Angel Delgado and Gabriel Martinez, from Venezuela and the 500 from the world, they grew up 6/1 6/2, until they fell in the Grand Final against the pair from Puerto Rico, Francisco Castaner and Rolando Ramos (3/6 6/4 6/10 ).
“Very good feelings”
lex, on their behalf, acknowledged their “good feelings at first appearance, a great experience,” he said, standing on the beach until summer. “I start in January with my university (Libscombe), we have a great team. And Oscar will open his own ITF calendar in the United States.”
