Upset, scare as Monarchs get going
THE OPENING round of the Barbados Public Workers’ Co-operative Credit Union Limited Monarchs of the Court 2016 provided some thrilling encounters when the action served off at the Cable & Wireless, Wildey courts on Sunday night.
With a top prize of a car and $3 000 at stake in the most lucrative road tennis tournament to be staged by the Professional Road Tennis Association, just one minor upset occurred on a night when six matches tossed up three games that went to deciders and four sows.
Former national champion Anderson “Black Dog” Richards was surprisingly on the receiving end of one of those sows as he struggled to defeat Shawn “Arnold Schwarzenegger” Spencer 21-19, 8-21, 21-14.
The muscular south paw Spencer can only blame himself for the early elimination as he should have taken the first game after leading 12-7. (KB)
