BARBADOS’ BEST road tennis player has lost his venom after a three-year, 26-game unbeaten streak.

And so have the previously invincible islandwide “A” class champions, St Michael.

Consistent Curtis Jones finally showcased his subtle but superb skills on the big stage by triumphing over Mark “Venom” Griffith twice on Thursday night.

Taking the court for the opening encounter of their semi-final in the National Sports Council’s Sports In The Community Championships at the Netball Stadium, Jones, representing his adopted parish St Lucy, upset Griffith 21-19, 7-21, 21-17 after conceding the second set with lacklustre returns once his opponent had built up a handsome lead.
