Moseley too much for Charles
Young Nicholas Charles and his supporters dreamed for all of five minutes as he challenged No.1 seed Russell Moseley for a final eight spot in the ICBL National Open Tennis Championships on Thursday night at the National Tennis Centre, Wildey.
However, that dream morphed into a nightmare as the unflappable Moseley ignored a 0-2 deficit to regally dismiss Charles 6-2, 6-0 setting up a clash with Jonathan “Kodi” Lewis last night.
Playing with tremendous confidence and displaying a high level of skill, Charles took the fight to Moseley to give hope to his fans.
That confidence and some remarkable shots saw Charles emitting loud screams and pumping his fist in celebration whenever he bested the No.1 player. Those screams became anguish and the celebrations were terminated as Russell showed why he was the top player in the island before Barbadians found a new king. (KB)
