Mohammed takes U-21 Sagicor title

Friday, July 13, 2018

Nabeel Mohammed produced the performance of his life at the Trinidad Country Club in Maraval yesterday to cop the Under-21 Boys Singles title of the Sagicor Junior Tennis Tournament.

Under rainy skies, Mohammed, this year's Bmobile National Open winner, continued his rich form on the court against rising talent Aiden Carter, but he had to battle for his silverware, first gaining the first set 7-6 and (3) in the tie-break. In the second set he was a lot more at ease, sealing the win 6-2 to his delight on court four.

An hour later Adam Escalante defeated number #1 seed Jaydon Alexis in straight sets 7-5, 6-1 to take home the Boys under-18 singles crown. Like his opponent, Escalante had an entire day's rest before he re-entered the court and it showed.

Meanwhile, Alijah Leslie, the beaten semifinalist two days ago, reclaimed glory by beating Jordan Mukerji in the boys u-18 consolation match on court one in straight sets 7-6(5), 6-4.

In the girls under-16 final, there were no surprises, as number #1 seed Yin Lee Assang made good on her perfect form this year, by whipping Keesa Lee Young 6-0, 6-1, while in the consolation match it was Charlotte Ready prevailing at the expense of Jaeda-Lee Daniel Joseph 7-5, 6-2.

In the lower under-14 division, Jamal Alexis completed his campaign with a 7-5, 7-5 triumph over Sebastian Sylvester, the number #2 seed, to take home the singles title.
