Moseley moves on with ease


Added 24 October 2012


Hot favourite, number one seed Russell Moseley, reached the quarter-finals with ease this week in the 15th Annual Christopher Howitt Tennis Championship. After earning a walkover from junior Gavin Hutchinson, Moseley recorded a clinical 6-1, 6-0 victory over another junior Aquille Trotman.   The top half of the draw is loaded with potential champions as Moseley’s opponent in the quarter-finals will be No. 6 seed Duncan Evanson. Evanson survived a scare in the first set of his match with Jared Spencer having to fight off a tenacious challenge, but settled down in the second to win 7-5, 6-2. Seanon Williams also reached his quarter-final berth in the top half with victories over Carron Beckles 6-0, 3-0 (ret.) and 6-1, 6-0 over Christian Maxwell. He is expected to meet Ryan Moseley, the No. 4 seed in the quarter-finals. In the bottom half, Andrew Thornton also won comfortably over Jodi Sandiford 6-1, 6-0. He will now face tougher opposition with Christopher King, a possible opponent in the round of 16. Also reaching the second round was veteran and national finalist Bernard Frost who defeated Maurice Walrond 6-2, 6-0. He now takes on Jacob Hunte who was a winner over Kris Whitton 2-6, 6-2, 6-0. In the doubles, No. 8 seeds Damien Applewhaite and Simon Lewis went down to Sydney Lopez and Ajani King in an entertaining encounter 6-3, 7-5; and another junior; Joshua Worme, teamed up with coach Michael Date to defeat Jason Small and David Sumpter 7-6 (5), 6-4. Play continues weekdays after 5 p.m. at the Ocean View Tennis Club, near Hilton Barbados. (PR/SAT)
