Tennis Coach Rates Tourney High


Local Tennis Coach, Thompson Ewetuga, has rated the ongoing Governor’s Cup Lagos  Tennis high.

Ewetuga, a member of Grassroots Tennis Initiative Vision 2020, was impressed with  the standard of play and the numbers of foreign players who registered for this  year’s edition.

“I am not surprised if Nigerian Tennis players fail to go far in this tournament  because the standard is high for our players. Some of the players who came to this  tournament prepared for it,” he said

Commenting on the performance of Nigerian players in the championship, Ewetuga said  there are many factors responsible for the failure of Nigerian players.

He said the local players are not prepared and their inexperience in international  competitions affected their performance in the Governor’s Cup.

He said it is a pity that despite the huge amount spent by the title sponsors,  Etisalat Nigeria and First City Monument Bank (FCMB) on the tournament, none of  Nigerian players reached the  crucial stage of the tourney.

“Our players are not equal to the task. The foreign players have sponsors that  finance them to take part in international competitions regularly. “Nigerian players  are abandoned to their fate which affect their performance in the competition of  this magnitude,” he said.
