It was a sheer show of superiority and class when Nigeria’s Thomas Otu took out Nenwani Anurag, an Indian, in their first round match at the ongoing GSL Open in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital to qualify for the second round.
Otu defeated the Indian in two straight sets of 7-5, 6-2 and the win means only one Nigerian players is hustling for a quarter final ticket at the ITF Futures which ends in Abuja, Nigeria’s federal capital.
|Star Boy in action…|
The player fondly referred to as ‘Star Boy’ will have to be at his very best in the second round match against Maximilian Neuchrist, the number three seed, which takes place inside the centre court of the tennis section of the National Stadium, Abuja.
This match will be a touch one for the defending champion of the Dala Hard Court tournament, seeing that the number three seed beat crowd favourite, Takanyi Garanganga silly in their first round encounter.
Nigerians will however, throw their weight behind their own and hope that he usurps the top Australian seed when they square up against each other in the match expected to be played in the afternoon.
