Venom stings White
MARK “VENOM” GRIFFITH DELIVERED the biggest bite of his career, paralyzing Barbados’ No. 1-ranked road tennis player, Julian “Michael Jackson”White, to capture the Silver Hill Youth Development Programme Road Tennis Championships for the second straight year.
Playing before a massive crowd at the Silver Hill hard court on Sunday night, Griffith fought back after losing the first set to destroy White 18-21, 21-16, 21-5, and claim the $1 500 first prized cheque.
His performance left spectators in shock, to say the least, as Jackson was widely expected to win in straight sets.
But the 27-year-old was not to be upstaged by his nemesis this time around, having fallen victim to Jackson in their previous four encounters.
