Public's favorite wins though opener in Auckland
After a long travel by ship, filantropic events with children and beach tennis exhibitions, Fernando Meligeni finally went to court. And it was successful. In the last match of first day action, Fininho defeated Mischa Zverev in last set TB after being 1-2 sets down. At the end, he won 6-3 4-6 4-6 7-6(5) 7-6(5).
"I'm so happy with this win. All i did was fight, fight and fight, and it was worthy. Mischa played so well, but i think the key of my victory was the 4th set tiebreak. I thought i was done, but fortunatelly i stayed alive."

That city is wonderufl, I had already been there and I can guarantee you: that's the most beautiful city in the world! You'll not only see great matches there, but also, wonderful beaches (full of wonderful hot girls, by the way) and a wordless shiny sun. VOTE FOR RIO DE JANEIRO!"
At that moment, Meligeni started to sing to the fans:
