The Nigerian teenager who has been in the United States for a while now, is scheduled to participate in the Main Draw of the junior tennis event which attracts all the best junior players from across the globe.
According to Nigeria Tennis Live checks, the Nigerian youngster is billed to play against Mason Vaughn, the tournament’s number nine seed.
