Akiel Duke and Nabeel Mohammed advanced to the quarter-final round of the Shell Tranquillity Open Tennis Tournament at Victoria Avenue, Port-of-Spain yesterday.
Mohammed, the winner of the East Zone Classified Tennis Tournament at the National Raquet Centre in Tacarigua in January, disposed of Marlon Weekes 6-2, 6-3 in the Men’s Singles match on court 6 to assure his place among the last eight. And across on court 3, Duke took care of Gian Luc Robinson 6-1, 6-0 in another second round encounter to book his place in the quarters.
The heavy downpour yesterday also failed to stop Keshan Moonasar, this year’s winner of the St James Tennis Championship, from progressing. Moonasar whose attempt to claim the early east classified title fell flat, made sure of a quarter final spot by beating Richard Mc Letchie on court 1, taking just two sets to whip his counterpart 6-1, 6-3.
Meanwhile, Athelstan Phillips also advanced to the final of the Men’s Veterans Singles when he prevailed 6-0, 6-0 over Michael Pemberton on court 4.
