Slim Hamza and partner Moez Echargui saw their bid for a Futures victory fall just short on Sunday, when the Tunisian doubles duo lost to No. 1 seeded Sam Barry (Ireland) and Claudio Grassi (Italy), 6-4, 7-6(2), in the F2 Futures in Sousse, Tunisia.
Hamza and Echargui entered the tournament on a wild card into the main draw, but upset the No. 2 seeded doubles team in the first round and didn’t lose a set until the finals. They will team up once again in the main draw of this week’s F3 event in Tunisia.
