Sylvester Starts 2019 As Nigeria’s No. 1, As Imeh, Adegoke Lose Top Spots (SEE FULL RANKING)

Sylvester Emmanuel is starting the 2019 tennis season as Nigeria’s number one male tennis player.

Nigeria Tennis Live reports that the latest ranking of the Nigerian players which was released in November, 2018, pushed the former Barcelona-based Nigerian tennis prodigy upwards above Joseph Imeh, who had occupied the number one spot all year.

With 165 points, Sylvester, who won back-to-back national tournaments in 2018, rose to the top of the ranking log, with Imeh following swiftly at the number two spot with 160 points having also won the Rainoil Tennis Open and Dala Hard Court tournaments.

In the Women’s category, Blessing Samuel rose to the top of the log, after edging out Sarah Adegoke who had held on to the top spot for quite a while.

Adegoke fell short in the national tournaments played in 2018 after dominating the local circuit for most part of the last two years, thus, she was beaten to the number one spot by Samuel, who has been consistent with her performance.

Check out the full rankings below as obtained by Nigeria Tennis Live:
