Maku dismisses Team Tombim’s ‘home advantage,’ as second semifinal holds in Abuja
The cream of Nigerian tennis will be in Abuja this weekend for the second semifinals of the Nigeria Communications Commission’s (NCC) Tennis League, which is offering a record N11 million in prize money.
The first semifinal, which took place in Enugu, was a cliff-hanger with only two points separating winners, Team Civil Defence, and Team Ogun in the final mixed doubles match which ended 3-6, 6-2, 10-8.
Now all eyes are on Abuja where Team Tombim, featuring Lagos Governor’s Cup winner, Moses Michael; Christian Paul, gold medalist at the last sports festival and Sarah Adegoke, ranked No.2 in Nigeria, are lined up to take on Team Kalotari from Port Harcourt.
Team Kalotari from Port Harcourt also has an array of talents led by former national No.1 and current doubles champion, Sunday Maku.
Maku, winner of the doubles title at the CBN Senior Open this year, is backed by Thomas Otu, CBN Senior Open singles champion, Sylvester Emmanuel, winner of the Ikoyi Club Senior Masters and Bala Musa.
