Tough day for local juniors

THE GOING GOT TOUGH yesterday, but Barbados aren’t expected to get going until tomorrow.

Qualifying for the main draw of the Scotiabank-sponsored International Tennis Federation’s Junior Tournament was always expected to be tough, and that proved true, as lower-ranked local players could not break through into this week’s main draw from yesterday’s play.

Playing in the Under-18 category at the National Tennis Centre, Aquille Trotman was one of this country’s most watched players, but though putting in a fighting effort, was easily handled 6-2, 6-4 by Luke Purser of the United Kingdom.

Also yesterday, Kyle Wiggins was defeated 6-0, 6-3 by Canada’s Jason Jackson-Coke. (BA)
