OVER three hours of play were lost to rain on the second day of the Catch National Junior Tennis Championships yesterday at Eddie Taylor Public Courts, King George V Park, St Clair.
And as a result the two-day round-robin phase of the tournament was not completed by press time.
Matches were expected to be finished under lights in the under-10, 12 and 14 division for the knockout draws to begin today.
Emma Davis and Scott Hackshaw, who both represented the country in the regional pre-qualifying tournament for the World Junior Tournament last week in El Salvador, are the overwhelming favourites to retain the Under-14 crowns they won last year.
The Under-16 and 18 categories are straight knockout and Davis is the top seed and defending Under-16 champ. Tobagonian Kezia Koroma is seeded to win the Under-18 title, while Nabeel Mohammed is the top seed and defending champ in both the boys’ under-16 and 18 divisions.
The tournament is continuing on a daily basis until Thursday and first serve today is 9 a.m.
