“After this UTR, I will be playing the MP Tiger tournament here in Lagos, and I cannot wait for that tournament to start,” he told journalists after his defeat of Basit Ajao on Saturday, 28 October, 2023.
The week-long event which will start and hold throughout the week inside the tennis section of the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, will be ending inside the Lagos Country Club on Sunday, 4 November, 2023.
