“Firstly, let me say a big thank you to the NCC for coming up with this tournament. It is a very good innovation which will keep the players in a competitive mood almost throughout the year.
“This is how players stay fit in several other countries of the world where I have been to. This is what we have always clamoured for; competitions that will keep us busy.
“We have the Abuja Futures in April, the Tennis League will start immediately after that, other competitions will also come in-between. That is really massive for our tennis.
“All I want Nigerians to know is that my team, Kalotari will carry the day and we shall dominate Nigerian tennis in the next few years and the nearest future,” he stated.
