Tennis Players Francesca Curmi and Elaine Genovese write history at the Oran Mediterranean Games.

A historic result for Malta this evening when tennis players Francesca Curmi and Elaine Genovese beat Italian duo Nuria Brancaccio and Auroroa Zantedeschi in the Habib Khelil Tennis Complex with a final score of 3-6, 7-6, 11-9.

The Maltese duo lost the first set 3-6. With the second set seemingly veering to the advantage of the Italian duo, Genovese and Curmi were not disheartened and gave a determined performance to win the second set 7-6. Spurred by the result, the Maltese girls gave their all to win the third set 11-9, thus not only making it to the final but also writing Maltese sporting history since they were the first Maltese tennis players to make it to the final round at the Mediterranean Games. 

The final game will be played against Jessica Bouzas Maneiro and Guiomar Maristany Zuleta from Spain, on the 30th June.
