Babalola, Lawal battle at Governor's Cup tennis
By John Egbokhan
Posted to the Web: Monday, October 09, 2006

Top Nigerian players, comprising Abdulmumuni Babalola, Shehu Lawal and Candy Idoko would from today begin their quest to win the Governor’s Cup Futures 1 holding at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club.

Babalola, the only seeded Nigerian players in the men’s singles draw, is bidding to do what no other Nigerian players has done in the last three years; win the Governor’s Cup. He is coming into this year’s event on a high after the victorious feat of the country’s Davis Cup team in Botswana, last July.

At that time, he paired US-based Jonathan Igbinovia to almost single-handedly book Nigeria a place in next year’s Davis Cup Euro-Africa Zone Group 11. Nigeria celebrated the feat in far-away Botswana but now, Babalola is competing as an individual and he must stay alert as he attempts to cross the first round hurdle in the $15,000 ITF Futures.

“I am hoping to do well at this tournament because it affords me the opportunity to improve on my ranking point, which I must confess to you, does not look good. I hope to do my best and pray that luck favours me”, said Babalola, who agrees that he faces tough tests at the tournament but remains adamant on conceding defeat rather easily.

“It is a game and like in every other game, only one player will emerge champion. It is left for any player to wish for what he wants and my wish is to be in good frame of mind to do well and get the luck that I deserve”, said the back-hander.

Other Nigerian players, jostling to win the Futures 1 of the Governor’s Cup, include Shehu Lawal and Candy Idoko. Both players, were to some extent, impressive at Niger State Governor’s Tennis Championship, held last month but the ongoing Futures 1 is another challenge altogether as it pitches them against players who are better ranked, better trained and more experienced.
The finals of the Futures 1 ends Saturday.

Gov Tennis: Record Entries for Tourney
By Femi Solaja, 10.08.2006

With unprecedented 150 entries, the main draw of the 6th edition of the Lagos Governor Tennis Circuit Tournament gets underway from today with Nigerian players aiming to upstage their foreign counterparts in the competition.
For 14 days, Nigerian players, led by Shehu Lawal, Abdul-Mumini Babalola and Sunday Maku, will display their prowess against their more exposed visitors for the $80,000 prize money in both the male and female categories.
The tournament, which is one of the two surviving International Tennis Federation (ITF) sanctioned events in the country, will hold at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Court, Onikan.
While appraising the tournament, which had held unbroken for five years, the Commissioner of Sports and Social Development in Lagos State, Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele said that the state government was not too comfortable with the visitors dominating the competition but expressed satisfaction that more Nigerians are being exposed to major tennis circuit.
The first leg of the circuit will end on Saturday while the final leg will commence immediately till 21st of this month.
The Lagos state Governor, Asiwaju Bola-Ahmed Tinubu is expected to attend the closing ceremony at the same venue.
