Chapman takes Sagicor U-10 tennis title

Thursday, July 12, 2018

Jordell Chapman was crowned Singles champion in the Boys Under-10 division of the Sagicor Junior Tennis Tournament at the Trinidad Country Club yesterday.

Following on his victory in the semifinal the day before, Chapman returned to the courts and completed the work by whipping his opponent Benjamin Harragin in the final 4-2, 4-1 on court three. And on the court one, Rizwan Mohammed who was one of the two beaten semi-finalists, had much to cheer about when he defeated Finn De Freitas in the consolation final 4-1, 4-1.

The girls U-10 Round Robin match was won by Abigail Chin Lee who took care of Eva Pasea 6-0.

Meanwhile, Nathen Martin was also on winner's row on the day's programme, copping the boy's U-12 title at the expense of Kale Dalla Costa, the U-10 winner in 2017. Martin was made to dig deep for his victory, however, taking the opening set comfortably at 4-1 before going down in the second 3-5.

The dogged under-12 stand-out then made amends in the final set by winning 10-6 to lift the title, much to the delight of his family members and friends.

Earlier Alex Chin battled Isaiah Boxhill for the u-12 consolation final prize 4-2, 4-5(5) and 10-4 on court two.

Meanwhile Lorcan Chan Pak and Gabby Mac Kenzie took the boys and girls u-14 consolation prizes by virtue of beating Beckham Sylvester and Adalia Badroe 5-3, 4-2 and 4-0, 4-1 respectively, while Aiden Carter, the country's rising talent, book a spot in the u-21 singles final when he prevailed over arch-rival Adam Ramkissoon 6-3, 7-6 and (9) in the tie-break of yesterday's semi-finals.

Carter will meet Nabeel Mohammed in today's mouth-watering final contest after Mohammed got the better of Scott Hackshaw in the other semis 6-3, 6-0.
