Day two of the McDan Tennis Training Matches saw ladies in the professional category battle it out in the round of 16 stage.
The biggest game of the day was between top seed, Yvonne Bruce-Tagoe and Helena Hammond with Yvonne winning 6-2, 6-2.
The match between Tracy Ampah and Annette Crushack had to end prematurely due to a health condition sustained by the former.
Match umpire, Mr. Godfred Tetteh explained the injury situation to Joy Sports.
“During the second set, I saw Annette holding her stomach so I called for the medical team who had to decide if she is fit to play or not.
During Asamoah Gyan’s tournament at 37, something similar happened and I think she failed to treat herself to full recovery and I think that was what happened today and according to ITF regulations, trainers have three minutes to treat injuries so if, after three minutes the player is still unable to play, the match is over.”
In other results, Yayra McKorley defeated Margaret Donkor 7-5, 6-3. Mariama Ibrahim knocked out Venessa Akuoko in two straight sets with a 6-4, 6-0 victory.
Here are the rest of the results from day two:
- Genevieve Kattah def. Portia Allotey
- Shika McKorley def. Lawrencia Manu
- Faustina Tagoe def. Asigri Eugenia
3-6, 6-2, 6-4
- Lawrencia Agorghoibia def. Fati Saliu
6-2, 6-6 (R)
The games are set to resume Wednesday morning, with the match-up between Jepheth Bagerbaseh and Henry Asokwa one of the games to look out for.
