Sylvester and Imeh are among the early birds in today’s matches as they face tough oppositions from Switzerland and India respectively.
Dark-skinned Major who made it to the main draw via the qualifiers, will have to be at his very best when he faces Aaron Schid, the number six seed from Switzerland, while Imeh, Nigeria’s number one male player, will square up against Kuran Vazirani from India.
Christian who strolled into the main draw of the main draw by virtue of his ranking points, has a date with Milen Ianakiev from Germany in one of the second matches scheduled for the day.
Nigerian Tennis Live findings reveal that only Christian and Imeh will be playing the doubles event as Sylvester’s name was not registered for the team event on Monday morning.
Nigerian Tennis Live will keep montoring the players’ performance in Zimbabwe and report their progress or otherwise as the ITF Futures continues in Harare, the nation’s capital city.
