Bajan Under-18 boys bow out
BARBADOS’ TOP PLAYERS found the going tough yesterday as the 2015 Scotiabank/ITF/Barbados International Junior tournament served off at the National Tennis Centre, Wildey.
Four of the island’s leading under-18 boys, Dylan Hall, Gavin Hutchinson, Ajani King and Emil Trotman, all went out in the first round against more seasoned opponents.
Hall, the No.8 seed, seemed capable at one stage of making it to the second round but was unable to get the better of Canadian Clarke Wilson after winning the first set.
Hall took the opening set 7-5, playing some impressive counter-attacking tennis, but seemingly could not find the gears in the other two sets and was defeated 5-7, 6-1, 6-4, as the Canadian refused to go away. (BB)
