Gov’s Cup Tennis: Unseeded Player Crushes No 1 Seed As Babalola, Enosoregbe Lose Badly

The first week of the Futures 4 of the Governor’s Cup Lagos Tennis Championship has begun on a rather surprising note with Karim Mohamed-Mamooun, the tournament’s number one seed, has been sent packing from the Men’s Singles.

Nigerian Tennis Live checks revealed that his match against Netherland’s Fransen Stephan lasted a minute more than one hour and the Egyptian, who is a regular in Lagos, fell like a pack of cards to the firepower of the Dutch man, losing in two straights set of 6-2, 6-2.

Enosoregbe lost his Singles match and will now focus on the doubles.

In other matches, Nigeria’s Abdulmumuni Babalola and Clifford Enosoregbe lost to Johan Sebatien Tatlot and Andrew Watson of France and Great Britain respectively in 0-6, 3-6 and 3-6, 0-6 games.

Imeh Joseph also retired in his game against Serbian Ilija Vucic having lost the first set 1-6.

Nigerian players will be hoping for a better fortune for the remaining players in the two-week long ITF pro-circuit which enters day two on Tuesday.
