The Bucs completed the doubles sweep as Robin Akser (Ornskoldsvik, Sweden) and Juan Ramirez (Asuncion, Paraguay) earned a hard fought win over Larry Condez and Jose Fantova, 8-7 (8).

The Bucs remained in control during singles play as well, winning all six matches in straight sets. At the No. 1 position, Gille defeated Fantova, 7-6 (5), 6-3. Bandres rolled past Banos-Lopez at the No. 2 position, 6-3, 6-2.

Teraz got back on track by defeating Condez, 6-4, 6-2, at the No. 3 position, while Jeremy Bonnevalle (Keerbergen, Belgium) remained undefeated in dual singles play with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Shalmi.
