Indonesian player Bryan Husin rears back, preparing to return a serve, on the first evening of the Copa del Café junior tennis tournament. Featuring a variety of adolescent players, the “Coffee Bowl” has enthralled tennis fans since the mid-1960s. Scores of spectactors flooded the Country Club in Escazú to watch the opening match between Husin and Costa Rican Alberto De Mendiola. Despite the home turf, Costa Rican players don’t have a great track record at the Copa, and this match was no exception: Husin defeated De Mendiola 6-2, 6-4.
