Nigeria’s number one male tennis player, Joseph Imeh alongside his female counterparts, Sarah Adegoke, have maintained their position on the list of top Nigerian players, Nigerian Tennis Live has gathered.

Even though they have been in top form for quite some time now, both players will need to win the next national tournament to displace the current players occupying the top spot on the ranking log as obtained by Nigerian Tennis Live.
It will be recalled that Imeh, who has maintained a stronghold on the top spot on the national rankings, has done so without necessarily winning any national tournament having participated in four major finals.
