Road tennis king
With the ease of a ballet dancer and the cut and thrust of a master fencer, Antoine ‘Lil Man’ Daniel won the hearts of fans and the inaugural Monarch Of The Courts Road Tennis Tournament at The Ranch, Spring Garden, on Sunday night.
Seconds after defeating Barbados’ No. 1 player Julian ‘Michael Jackson’ White in four games, Daniel was hoisted by scores of his fans before he raised his winning cheque of $10 000 after receiving that big payday from Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler.
Daniel, who established a record by winning the junior and senior titles in 1986, returned to the game after a break of over 15 years to mow down most of Barbados’ best players. (KB)
