East Africa ITF Tennis Circuit Day 3

Today, our favorites and third seeded, Amadi Kagoma (BUR) and Joshua Luck (RSA) with shaky start today, as they grabbled with a new partnership against a well-oiled machine, on F. Migliano (ITA) and A. Ovechkin (RUS). Both Joshua and Amadi hang onto the tail, losing the first set 5-7, before relaxing and grabbing the second set 6-3, setting up for a nail-biting super tie-break, which they took 10-8. This win takes them to the Boys doubles quarterfinals.
