NABEEL MOHAMMED and Emma Davis will be defending the singles titles they won last year in the Catch National Junior Tennis Championships at the Eddie Taylor Public Courts, King George V Park, St Clair.
There are over 150 players entered in the country’s most prestigious junior tournament and singles and doubles action will take place in the Under-10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 age-groups on a daily basis from today until Thursday.
Mohammed captured the Under-16 and 18 titles last year and is the overwhelming favourite to retain both crowns.
Scott Hackshaw, heavily favoured to keep his Under-14 title, is the second seed in the Under-16 division, while Nkrumah Patrick is No. 2 in the Under-18 draw.
Davis will attempt to win the Under-14 and 16 division titles for the second year in succession.
Arch-rival Emma Rose Trestrail was seeded second in the Under-16 category and the left-hander is also in the Under-18 draw, where Tobagonian Kezia Koroma, the runner-up in last year’s National Championships, is seeded to win from Juliet Campbell.
