With one crack of the forehand, Jordi Massallé Ferrer claimed immortality within Charlotte athletics.
The sizzling sun rays beat down on the darkened green playing surface at Halton-Wagner Tennis Complex. Massallé Ferrer stood with two feet planted behind the white end line. He gripped his Babolat AeroPro Drive racquet in his right hand as his left palm caressed the vibrant yellow, felt tennis ball. Fairfield’s Ofir Soloman stood across the net, swaying back and forth as Massallé Ferrer tossed the ball above his head and served.
Fans looked on as the senior hailing from Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain volleyed back and forth with his opponent.
