Alcantara in semis

Francis Casey Alcantara marched into the doubles quarterfinals of the Indonesia F6 Futures tournament after he and Indonesian partner David Susanto edged their Indonesian foes yesterday in Jakarta.

Alcantara and Susanto, seeded second in the $10,000 event, recovered from a slow start and bested Iswandaru Kusumo Putro and Haekal Ramadhan, 3-6, 6-1, 10-4.

The Filipino-Indonesian tandem leaned on their strong serves despite stumbling with three double faults by posting 79 percent on their first serves compared to their rivals’ 49 percent.

Alcantara and Susanto also scored four break points in the 55-minute match. (KS)
