Good News

Good news arrived in my Email Box today from Ghassan Beidas father of Bassam Beidas who this week was playing in Cairo Egypt in a F13 Futures .Partnering college team mate from Pepperdine , Omar ALTMANN the unseeded pair won the final of the doubles beating locals KAMAL AITA, Ramy and MOUSSA, Mohamed also unseeded .Bassam also unseeded and having to go through qualifying, knocked out the top seed on route to the final of the mens singles event where he will meet second seed Karim MAAMOUN a household name of egypt tennis.I worked with Bassam as a 12/13 year old and knew he had the drive and the work ethics to achieve good results.I believe this is his first ever futures singles final and wish him the best of luck for the final.Below are Beidas and Altmann playing for Pepperdine.Bassam is foreground.Check all the results.The top photo sees' local South Canterbury juniors Annabel Ellis and Robbie Wigley having some time out at training.Check all the results from the ITF Cairo here
