– other top seeds advance as well
Top seed and defending Men’s champion Kristian Jeffrey and Nicolette Fernandes eased into the second round of the GT&T sponsored National Senior Squash Championships, after defeating their respective opponents, as action in the competition got started on Tuesday evening, at the Georgetown Club courts.
All the other top seeds advanced as well with little difficulty, except for Daina King, who was pushed to four sets by Alysa Xavier, before prevailing.
Jeffrey beat Andy Gouveia in three straight sets, while Fernandes, playing in the Men’s draw dispatched the young promising Nyron Joseph, also in straight sets.
Last evening was expected to feature several intriguing quarter-finals, in the Men’s Division. Robert Fernandes was slated to engage two-time Caribbean junior champion Alexander Arjoon, while his sister Nicolette had a tricky assignment against the deceptive Jerazeno Bell.
In the Ladies Open category, Mary Fung-A-Fat, Daina King and Chantelle Fernandes were expected to face off against Ashley Khalil, Keisha Jeffrey and Kayla Jeffrey respectively.
Action continues every evening from 18:00 hrs, with the semi-finals and finals scheduled for tomorrow and Saturday.
