In the end, it was Emelie Okika and NJ Omeruo who emerged winners of the men and women singles event respectively.
Okika defeated Rume Dubre 6-4, 6-0 in the highly entertaining final match. The first set was tough as both smashers gave a good account of themselves but in the second Okika dominated largely to confirm supremacy.
After his victory, Okika said it was sweet to defeat the same player that denied him the title in the last edition.
In the women’s cadre, Omeruo overpowered Mobalaji Ogundairo also in straight sets of 6-3, 6-0. Despite the score, it was a final match that kept club members at the edge of their seats with quality display.
The Chief Executive Officer of Luik Tennis Club, Uzonna Izugbokwe, was among the dignitaries that witnessed the final on Saturday.
