But for her losses in the doubles event, Nigeria’s Oyinlomo Quadri has been one of the brightest stars at the ongoing Fed Cup tournament in Tunisia, Nigerian Tennis Live has gathered.
The Nigerian starlet who was once ranked among the top 300 best junior players of the world, had defeated her Tunisian opponent in the opening fixture but could not sustain the momentum as she lost in the doubles with her Nigerian compatriot. The same was the fate that befell her in the second round of fixtures against South Africa.
|Oyinlomo Quadri is presently struggling to have a firm grip on her doubles matches.|
Our correspondent gathered that Quadri won her singles match in two straight sets of 6-4, 6-1, but her doubles partner lost her singles and also lost in the doubles as Nigeria continues to struggle for a lifeline in this competition.
With this result, the team is not likely to qualify from the group because only one team is expected to make progress from the group.
Coach Margaret Oladunjoye, who led the team to the North African country is sure to psyche her wards up ahead of their next encounter so as to help the players get something out of the annual tournament.
Nigerian Tennis Live will also keep monitoring the players’ performances in Tunisia and report o our teeming audience as the competition progresses.
