How Ogunshakin, Mubarak Can Become Top 50 Players – Kienka

Seun Ogunshakin and his eternal rival, Mubarak Ganiyu have the potentials of becoming top 50 in the world according to Mr. Godwin Kienka.

The youngsters who have both battled one another in national junior competitions, have dominated the Boys 14, 16 & Unders in the past few years and seem to be taking this dominance to the continental stage.

And having both won in the 14 and 16 Boys’ categories respectively, Kienka believes that Seun and Mubarak have what it takes to reach the top 50 in the world.

The Director of the International Tennis Academy who made this assertion during prize presentation at the finals of the Sapetro Future Tennis Championship in Lagos, noted that if the players can be snapped up by Academies, the future is bright.

“We have been saying it, that these players should be taken to Academies. They are great prospects for Nigerian tennis.

“If they can be taken to Academies, they are potential top 50 world players, Ogunshakin and Ganiyu.

So, hopefully, this will happen in the nearest future,” Kienka, a former national tennis champion, noted.

The two youngsters are among the top juniors expected to represent their states, Seun (Ekiti), Mubarak (Oyo) at the fast approaching National Youth Games in Ilorin, the Kwara State Capital, in October.

Feelers from states across the Federation have it that State coaches and tennis associations are currently drilling their players ahead of the championship.
