Alcantara eyes bigger tourneys, Grand Slam

/ 05:02 AM July 01, 2018

Francis Casey Alcantara is gearing up for big-time meets.

The 26-year-old Filipino tennis hotshot will campaign in the $150,000 Challenger in Astana, Kazakhstan, in the next couple of weeks.

“This should be it,” said the Pepperdine University stalwart, who is seeing action in only his second Challenger tournament of his career.

With a 366th world ranking in doubles, Alcantara is hoping to join meets featuring top players in the world.


“My immediate goal is to improve my rankings and I think I’m on the right track,” added Alcantara, whose goal is to play in a Grand Slam.

The last time Alcantara played a Challenger meet was in 2016.
