The McDan Foundation Tennis Training Matches got underway on Monday at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The games being organised in a knockout format featured 16 professional men’s singles matches.
The standout fixture between Francis Gbolornyo and Ghana’s top seed, Jepheth Bagerbaseh saw Jepheth edge out Francis in two straight sets with a score of 6-2,6-2.
In an interview with Joy Sports after his game, Jepheth explained that it was difficult for him to maintain his form during the lockdown period.
His opponent Gbolony commended the quality of Jepheth and indicated that it will be wrong for him to blame his defeat on poor form due to a long break because Bagerbaseh put in a very good performance.
