This feat means the former African no. 1 U-14 player has now won three Junior ITF titles already in 2024, adding his recent feat to his success early in the year where he won back-to-back J30 titles in Abuja, Nigeria’s federal capital.

The 15-year-old Ekiti-born player also won the Doubles event at the J30 Kairouan event where he partnered with his opponent in the final of the Singles.
