Eala, Russian partner settle for second

[ad_1]

Alex Eala and Oksana Selekhmeteva ended their run in the W25 Platja D’Aro in Spain on Saturday night after falling short to Lithuania’s Justina Mikulskyte and Romanian Oana Georgeta Simion, 6-3, 7-5, in the final.

Still, it was a gallant effort for Eala, who turns 16 on Sunday, and her 18-year-old Russian partner, who yanked the rug from under top seeds Vlada Koval and Sofya Lansere (6-3, 6-2, 12-10) in the quarterfinal.

Eala and Selekhmeteva defeated Dutch pair Isabelle Haverlag and Suzan Lamens, 6-3, 6-1, in Friday’s semifinals to book a final berth. —MARC ANTHONY REYES
