Junior tennis ace Adam Ramkissoon is favoured to walk away this year's Boys Under-18 Singles title of the Lease Operators Junior Tennis Tournament which serves off from 9 am this morning at the Trinidad Country Club Tennis Club in Maraval.

Ramkissoon, a beaten competitor at the recent Bmobile National Tennis Open at the National Racquet Centre in Tacarigua, is set to take his revenge on a relatively inexperienced field, as his close rival Aiden Carter is out pursuing his studies. Ramkissoon will begin his campaign at 12:20 pm today, facing Jordan Mukerji on court one, before meeting Che Andrews on court two a few minutes later at 1:40 pm.

The Boys U-18s will also see Scott Hackshaw, another seasoned campaigner in the field, coming up against Andrews at the same time on court two. But in the early afternoon, Hackshaw will take the court for a second time in a meeting with Mukerji while Jaydon Alexis and Adam Escalante will square off at 1:40 pm on court three.

The under-18 Women's Singles also promises to be an exciting affair, with Singaporean Tameka Peterson playing her second major tournament on local soil. Peterson whose father is Trinidadian, won her first game in T&T recently, a gutsy 4-6, 6-0, 6-2 triumph over Cameron Wong at the Bmobile Tennis Open before surrendering in her second game due to injuries.

Today Peterson will get going against Victoria Koylass on court three, while Osenyonye N'Wokolo will take on Stephanie Sirju on the adjacent court four from 12:20 pm.

Kyle Kerry who dominated the u-14 division with David Rodriguez last year has moved up to the u-16s where he will begin against Alijah Leslie at 1 pm, while Rodriguez will face Joel Augustine in his opener.

Ethan Wong, one of few players to remain in the u-14 division, could fancy his chances when he begins against his name-sake Ethan Gibbon from 11 am.

Beckham Sylvester another key player among the u-14s, will have a date with Saqiv Williams on court two.
