Sylvester Emmanuel, the Nigerian number two male tennis player, will be seeking a second round berth at the ongoing Tunisia Futures 33 in Monastir after seeing off an Italian opponent, Christian Feline, in two straight sets of 6-2, 6-1.
This win means he is playing in the main draw of the ITF Pro-circuit for the first time in two weeks, after initially suffering a knock on his ankle during the first round of qualifying matches to play in the main draw.
