The non-playing Davis Cup captain told Tennis Special from his base in Abuja that: “I would really love to  see more of our players participating in the Governor’s Cup this year because this tourney is organised to  help improve their skills and the country’s tennis.

“Since it’s pretty difficult for these players to bankroll their participation in international tourneys, the  Governor’s Cup presents them with the opportunity to rub shoulders with their counterparts around the world.”
