According to him: “The federation considered the current economic challenge in the country, and thought the best way to ease pressure on the players is by slashing the registration fee for the Nigerian players.

“It’s enough that there is hike in transportation and other expenses for the players to participate in this event, so, we wanted to make things easier for the participating players from Nigeria.”

Nigeria Tennis Live also gathered authoritatively that players who already paid the designated amount for the registration will get a refund from the federation.
