Abayomi, Udofa Shine As Topshot UTR Event Ends Saturday

By OUR CORRESPONDENT

The annual Topshot organized Universal Tennis Rating tournament enters crucial stage today as the young smashers battle in the Boys and Girls cadre to get into final stage of the competition.

After rain disturbed proceedings on Wednesday, the event got underway yesterday at the Lagos State Civil Service Club in GRA, Ikeja.

Interesting results were recorded as Philip Abayomi whipped Micheal Osewa 6-1,6-3 but Jimoh Joseph had to be dragged into rubber against Olowogbele Elisha in a match he won 6-0,0-6,10-8.

Blessing Omotayo also had to play three sets against Toyin Asogba with a victory of 5-7, 6-2, 10-3 but it was an easy one for Mary Udofa who defeated Esther Olamide 6-2, 6-3.

In another match, Emmanuel Fortune also defeated Adamu Noah 7-6, 6-1 to move on in the competition as the smashers fight to make the final slated for Saturday.

Tournament Director, Jumoke Yakubu, said the level of competition had been very high because the players are eager to be on course for scholarship to the United State of America.

“We are witnessing fireworks almost in every match. Every match is like a final and the sponsors and members of the Lagos Civil Service Club are excited. This is very good from the young ones. We have seen many potential future champions here already, Yakubu said.

She commended sponsors- Lanre Ola, Biodun Oladipupo and Tokunbo Agoro- because of their efforts in putting smiles on the faces of the young smashers.

The UTR event ends on Saturday.
