J30 Abuja: Mohammed Ambushes Yakubu As Ogunsakin, Ganiyu Renew Rivalry

Abuja-based Khadijat Mohammed will battle Nigeria’s number one junior female player, Ohunene Yakubu, in a bid to qualify for the semis of the J30 Abuja event.

Mohammed, winner of the Dala Hard Court championship in 2023 will depend on her killer instincts to take down the tournament’s number one seed, who is another extremely tough player to come up against.

Their match, which will be played on the centre court of the tennis section at the National Stadium, Abuja, venue of the event, is sure to attract goosebumps as both players are a delight to watch.

Meanwhile, it will be a south-south derby on court one when Akwa-Ibom’s Etoro Bassey, the tournament’s number two seed, takes the battle to her Calabar-based opponent, Toluwalashe Agunbiade.

While the pair are very good friends off the court, it will be seen today, it will not be a stroll in the pack for either of the players when hostilities resume.
