Fininho rests at the beach the day after his debut
Nothing better than relax in Auckland beaches. At least that's the thoughts of Fernando Meligeni, who faces Mischa Zverev in his first match of the season. Meligeni is being a sensation at New Zealand, earning more and more fans by being such a nice guy. Local junior players got excited with his presence, as they improvised a "beach tennis court" and played a doubles match.
Meligeni and his partner, Josh Ymegantuashytan defeated two other guys 12-10 in a super tiebreak. Josh was such happy after the match:
"Man, it was such an experience to partner him! He's so cool and I'll cheer for him in this tournament for sure! He also gave us entries to the first 3 days of matches!"
Meligeni will play tomorrow the last match of centre court, in the evening session. Auckland TV will cover the match, and for Brasilians, Meligeni's coach will provide a livestream direct from his cell phone.
