The centre court of the tennis section inside the National Stadium in Abuja will not be short of fireworks when two of Nigeria’s top juniors face each other as the second leg of the J30 Abuja serves off.

Khadijat Mohammed, winner of the 2023 Dala Hard Court championship will be playing a second round match in the Girls’ Singles event against Etoro Bassey, finalist at the first leg of the J30 Abuja event.

Their match up is one of the opening matches on Wednesday, amidst a flurry of tantalizing matches which will be gracing the courts on the first day of the tournament.

Bassey, the J30 Abuja number two seed, whose meteoric rise after reaching the final of the first leg will spur her on, will have to be at her very best when she takes on the power hitting Mohammed who played a final set match against eventual winner, Ohunene Yakubu.
