Jones just couldn’t keep up
In the world’s eyes, every aspiring entertainer can only aim to be second best to Michael Jackson.
The picture is much the same in road tennis.
With a chance to overtake local legend Julian “Michael Jackson” White on this year’s money earning’s list, Curtis Jones fell just short on Wednesday night after failing to reach the Belfield final of the BNB Racquets of Fire tour.
Having beaten White in last weekend’s final in Roadview, the fast-rising Jones couldn’t replicate that stirring run following an 18-21 semi-final defeat to Dan Skeete, who inevitably lost to White in the final.
At least Jones could take solace in quickly becoming a huge fan favourite after continually wooing the crowds with shots like this backhand cut.
