Moses, a student of Coach Abe Babatunde at the Tombim Tennis Academy in Abuja, remains a fans favourite to win any local or international tournament in the country with the die hard spirit he displays during major championships.

On the other hand, Emmanuel aka Major is a teenager who is ready to take the world of Nigerian tennis by storm and give the more fancied players a run for their money.

The US-based dark-skinned star won the inaugural Ikoyi Tennis Masters tourney in Lagos in 2014 and looks set to consolidate on that as he marches on with the current national placing.

In the female category, Christie Agugbom seems not to be leaving anything to chance as she reclaimed her number one after losing it to Sarah Adegoke about two years ago.

The dogged tennis star boasts calmness in the court and has a lot of national titles to her credit as she stays ever strong to remain very relevant in Nigerian tennis.
