Zim hopes for better in ITF 3rd leg

Zimbabwean players will be hoping for better performances in the ITF 3rd and final leg after the country failed to provide a semi-finalist in the second leg which ended at Harare Sports Club today.

The ITF tennis second leg proved to be a tough one for Zimbabwean players.

Benjamin Lock, Mehluli Sibanda and Courtney Lock all stumbled in the quarter-finals with Takanyi Garanganga having been eliminated in the first round by Richard Thongoana.

After winning the first leg following a victory over Garanganga, Benjamin was naturally disappointed following his elimination in the quarter-finals.

Benjamin and Courtney however, teamed up for a back to back doubles title, overcoming Connor Farren and Milen Ivanakiev 6-2, 6-3.

In the ITF singles final, Argentina’s Matias Descotte overcame Great Britain’s Isaac Stoute 6-2,7-5 to win the second leg of the ITF futures.

Action resumes with the third leg set to round up international tennis action.
