Venom wins Titan-ic five-setter
MARK “VENOM” GRIFFITH has proven that he is a titan in every sense of the word.
Mixing solid defense with measured attack while showcasing superior physical abilities, Griffith outrallied and outlasted an exhausted Curtis Jones 21-18, 21-14, 19-21, 26-28, 21-10 in a thrilling five-setter to capture the inaugural United Insurance Clash of the Titans Road Tennis Competition at the Wildey Gymnasium last night.
The match was seemingly headed for an early finish after Griffith won the first two sets.
But a determined Jones treated the large crowd on hand as well as those tuned in to the Caribbean Media Corporation website where the event was being streamed live, to some superb tennis as he battled back from the brink of a straight sets defeat to level the score at 2-2, before Griffith’s superior fitness decided the outcome.
The victory gave the 27-year-old road tennis star his second title of the year, having also won the Silver Hill Road Tennis Championships. (RB)
