Mikel Beroiz out of Manomanista

Mikel Beroiz’s misfortune continues. After an injury to his right hand put paid to the chances of he and Aimar Olaizola making the Pairs final, the young Asegarce star has now been forced out of the Manomanista Championship. He was due to take on Abel Barriola in the first round on 6th May but will be replaced by Aritz Begino. Begino therefore gets a reprieve after losing his qualifying match to Iker Arretxe.
