BELIZE CITY, Tue. Feb. 16, 2016–A junior singles tennis tournament kicked off this past Saturday, February, at the Belize Pickwick Club Tennis Courts for Lime Green category, where the length of the full-size court is made smaller by 4 feet on each side to accommodate younger players. The top four juniors who proceeded to the semifinals were Alex Musa, Devesh Hukmani, Blake Lee and Nisani Mendez. Alex Musa overcame Nisani Mendez in a very close semifinal match, 4 games to 3, to make the finals; and Hukmani defeated Blake Lee, 4-0, to contend the finals. In the finals, Devesh Hukmani came back from a 2-love deficit to take the victory over Alex Musa, 4 games to 2.
Congratulations to Marco Chi and Sofia Solano, who showed great improvement and readiness for the big court!! All junior players from all categories are encouraged to keep on playing, as several tournaments are coming up!!
