Hong Kong’s F4 Futures Tournament Webpage

HONG KONG, China—
Former UC Davis men’s tennis player Alec Adamson earned himself more ATP points, this time in doubles play, after his qualification to the Semi Final round with doubles partner and recent North Carolina graduate Jack Murray at the the 2017 Hong Kong ITF Men’s F4 Futures Tournament, which took place at Victoria Park on Dec. 18-24.

Adamson and Murray started off this tournament with a well-earned win in the main draw’s Round of 16 over Chun Hun Wong and Pak Long Yeung of Hong Kong, 6-4, 3-6, 11-9, to advance on to the Quarter Final round.

In the main draw of the Quarter Final round, the Corona Del Mar., Calif, native and partner faced the No. 4 seeds Nicholas Hu and Michael Zhu of USA, where they garnered another win thanks to their overall performance and needed clutch shots during the last two sets of the match, 5-7, 6-3, 10-6. By virtue of reaching the semifinal round in doubles play, it was then that Adamson received his first professional doubles points to add to his growing list of tennis accomplishments.

Moving into the main draw’s Semi Final round, the USA duo saw an end to their winning streak when they met on the courts with the No. 1 seeded doubles team and eventual doubles champions of Ti Chen from Taipei and Goncalo Oliveria of Portugal, 2-6, 6-7(3). Individually, Chen and Oliveria are also ranked among the Top 200 in doubles play.
