Siddharta Almeida and Alexia Nakashima, alongside Daniel Godoi and Livia Lima, each added two further titles to their collection.

Partnering Luis Anjos, Siddharta Almeida won the Junior Boys’ Doubles title, the pair accounting for Argentina’s Martin Bentancor and Francisco Sanchi, at the final hurdle (9-11, 11-7, 11-4, 11-9).

The win came prior to joining forces with Alexia Nakashima to emerge as the Junior Mixed Doubles champions. In the title deciding contest, once again it was Argentina who experienced defeat; the Brazilians recovered from a two games to nil deficit to beat Francisco Sanchi and Camila Kaizoli (7-11, 10-12, 11-3, 11-3, 11-5).

Success for Alexia Nakashima; earlier in the day it had been success in harness with Luana Souza; in the Junior Girls’ Doubles competition, they had beaten the host nation’s Leyla Gomez and Cielo Mutti in the gold medal contest to claim the top prize (11-8, 11-6, 7-11, 11-6).

Impressive performances; in the younger age group it was the same from Daniel Godoy and Livia Lima.

Together, they won the Cadet Mixed Doubles title, beating colleagues Kenzo Carmo and Beatriz Kimoto (10-12, 11-9, 7-11, 14-12, 11-5); apart Daniel Godoi partnered Diogo Silva to Cadet Boys’ Doubles success, Livia Lima allied with Giulia Takahashi to claim the Cadet Girls’ Doubles top prize.

At the final hurdle Daniel Godoi and Diogo Silva overcame Argentina’s Luciano Alto and Matias Guadaloupe (11-7, 11-8, 7-11, 11-6); Livia Lima and Giulia Takahashi beat Colombia’s Manuela Echeverry and Juliana Rodriguez (15-13, 11-9, 14-16, 11-5).

Play concludes on Wednesday 22nd March with the finals of the Junior Boys’ Singles, Junior Girls’ Singles, Cadet Boys’ Singles and Cadet Girls’ Singles events.
