Portugal Futures Tournament Website
SINTRA, Portugal- After graduating from UC Davis with a successful four-year collegiate career, former men’s tennis player Alec Adamson received his first ATP point and official professional ranking after his win against James Marsalek of Great Britain in the Portugal Futures tournament on Tuesday in Sintra, Portugal.
Adamson won the match in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2, and did so in less than optimal weather conditions. Despite the strong winds, as well as facing his opponent with a notably good backhand, Adamson was able to remain consistently solid in both his serves and returns to secure his win that day.
The Corona Del Mar, California native advanced to the main draw thanks to three wins in the qualifying rounds. He opened with a win against Portugal’s Goncalo Falcao by scores of 6-3, 6-0, and also defeated Uganda’s Duncan Mugabe (6-2, 7-6) and France’s Clement Larriere (4-6, 6-4, 6-3).
Adamson returns to the court against Spain’s Javier Pulgar-Garcia. To stay updated with Adamson’s latest results and rankings in the tournament, click on the link above.
