While her Nigerian counterparts are slugging it out in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital at the ongoing Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Senior Tennis Open Championship, Marylove Edwards is in far away Aruba, trying to pick junior ITF points.
The Nigerian tennis prodigy, Nigerian Tennis Live gathered, has already qualified to play in the main draw of her first U-18 ITF in the small island not far from America.

The Nigerian starlet who has been at the Nick Bolleteri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Florida, for a little over a year, is making her debut at the age grade ITF competition, after easily seeing off her American and Curacao opponents.
Nigerian Tennis Live checks showed that Marylove was responsible for the defeat of America’s Sheridan Sanford in a 6-0, 6-0 game and also saw off Luna Schuurman from Curacao in a blistering 6-0, 6-1 win in her two qualifying matches on Saturday, 23 and Sunday, 24 June respectively.
With this result, Marylove, the 2017 CBN Senior Tennis Open Championship finalist, may be on her way to registering her first ITF point in the junior cadre of tennis.
Nigerian Tennis Live is sure to monitor her progress in the tournament and report to our teeming readers as the competition continues.
