The 2018 Fort Lauderdale Major will reach its climax on Saturday, with the women’s champions being crowned at the Red Bull Beach Arena and the finalists of the men’s tournament being determined after the completion of the 10 matches scheduled for the day.
The first teams to step up on court will be the semifinalists of the women’s tournament, with qualifiers Victoria Bieneck and Isabel Schneider of Germany and Taiana Lima and Carol Horta of Brazil playing for the first spot in the final at 10am EST.
The only American team still competing for medals, Summer Ross/Brooke Sweat, will face Brazilians Barbara Seixas and Fernanda Berti in the second semifinal at 11.15am EST.
Men’s quarterfinals will kick-off at 12.15pm EST with another Brazil versus USA duel featuring Pedro Solberg/George Wanderley and John Hyden/Theo Brunner at the Red Bull Beach Arena. On side court 2, a European classic sees Spain’s Pablo Herrera/Adrian Gavira and Italy’s Daniele Lupo/Paolo Nicolai go face-to-face.
One hour later, fan favorites Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena of the USA will be back on the Red Bull Beach Arena to face Dutchmen Alexander Brouwer and Robert Meeuwsen. At the same time, another all-European quarterfinal match will take place on court 2 with Poland’s Piotr Kantor and Bartosz Losiak playing Latvia’s Aleksandrs Samoilovs and Janis Smedins.
The first medal of the first Beach Major Series event of the year will be in contest at 2.30pm EST when the bronze medal match is set to start. At 4pm, it will be time for the most exciting moment of the day with the best two female teams of the tournament fighting head-to-head for the coveted gold medals.
The male tournament will return in the night session with the two semifinals. The first match is scheduled for 7.15pm with the second closing the day in great fashion at 8.30pm.
