Fynn crashes out in doubles

HARARE - Zimbabwe’s hopes of winning something at the ongoing NetOne ITF Futures tournament ended yesterday after Mark Fynn crashed out in the doubles semi-final here.

Fynn and his American playing partner Matt Seeberger  went down to the French pair of Gregoire Barrere and Arthur Surreaux  Gregoire  4-6 6-3 (10-5).

In the quarter-finals, the 29-year-old Fynn and  Seeberger beat the pair of Zambian Patrick Mufumbila and South Africa’s Tucker Vorster 6-4, 6-4 in straight set to progress to the last four.

Zimbabwe’s sad story started yesterday after Fynn and Tinotenda Chanakira bowed out in the singles.

Fynn went down to second seed Antal Van Der Duim 6-3, 6-2 in the second round.

Chanakira suffered a straight sets defeat to fifth seeded Ruan Roelofse from South Africa losing 6-1, 6-3.

On his way to the second round, Fynn had defeated beat United States player Jordan Dyke 6-4, 6-4 in the first round while Chanakira outclassed fellow countryman Martin Dzuwa 6-4, 6-3 to reach teh second round.

Zimbabwe’s poor performance comes just a week after the local tennis players had also put a dismal performance at the Twenty Third Centuries International ITF Futures.
