Two brothers, two tournaments but one aim – to reach the semifinals!

Latvians brothers Aleksandrs and Mihails Samoilovs will be chasing a unique double despite being 2,500km apart…at almost the same time!

At the A1 Major Klagenfurt, older brother Aleksandrs and teammate Janis Smedins will be going into battle in the quarterfinals against Brouwer/Meeuwsen in a very, very tasty last-eight clash on Center Court at 6pm.

An hour earlier, in Cyprus 18-year-old Mihails and partner Kristaps Smits will be gunning for a place in the last four of the FIVB U19 World Championships! What are the odds of that happening?!

Stay tuned to see if the two siblings can succeed on what could be a super Saturday for the Samoilovs brothers!
