Olympic champs make it through

Brazilians gain revenge for Poreč defeat

Olympic champions Alison Cerutti and Bruno Oscar Schmidt booked a last 16 meeting with Fort Lauderdale Major champions Alvaro Filho and Saymon Barbosa after beating Italians Lupo/Nicolai.

In a rematch of the Olympic final and the Poreč Major semifinal, the two teams went head-to-head after failing to win their pools.

And in a top quality match which would have befitted a game later in the tournament, it was the Brazilians that came out on top in straight sets, 21-16, 25-23 in 48 minutes.

Meanwhile Qatari duo Jefferson/Cherif made it into the last 16 with a superb 2-0 win over Canadians Ben Saxton and Chaim Schalk. Their prize is a crack at last year’s Gstaad Major silver medalists Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena.

Remember to follow all the action live on BeachStream – including the women’s semifinals which kick-off at 11am.
