“Everyone is putting in 100% despite knowing they’re not all going and that tells you that the players know why they’re in camp.

“The coaches are also not resting on their oars to ensure that the players are perfectly ready for the competition.”

Our correspondent also asked him about the readiness of the foreign-based players expected to join the team heading out to Ghana and he noted that they were being monitored.

“We’re also monitoring the others who are not with us. One is in Rwanda, and others are playing College tennis now, because they’re in season now.

“They’re also reaching out to us to give us some updates about their activities, this goes to show that we’re all in sync with the activities of these players who are not with us,” Coach Akinloye explained.
