Fort Lauderdale Major honours its local heroes

Fort Lauderdale, USA, February 10, 2017 - Fort Lauderdale Major lauded its local heroes Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena as they talked about their early beginnings and chemistry as partners.

The elimination round on Friday will see the American pair facing Germany’s Markus Bockermann/Lars Fluggen, who endured heavy rains and Latvia’s Aleksandrs Samoilovs/Janis Smedins (21-19, 21-19) in Round 1.

Nothing will dampen spirits for the United States’ Lane Carico and Irene Pollock.

Germany’s Kira Walkenhorst is all pumped up as she and partner Julie Grossner are set to meet the Netherlands’ Sophie Van Gestel and Madelein Meppelink for the elimination on Friday.

Meanwhile, Walkenhorst’s Olympic partner Laura Ludwig manages to send her greetings from elsewhere.

Swiss duo Nico Beeler and Marco Krattiger likewise take a dip to celebrate victory (22-20, 21-18) against Canada's Ben Saxton/Chaim Schalk.

As night falls, Fort Lauderdale Major shines with the added thrill of matches under the lights.

But for now, we say goodbye to Casey Patterson’s glasses.
