Mohammed, Lewis dumped
out Tranquility Singles
T&T struggledagainst their regional neighbours yesterday
in the Men's Singles of the Shell Tranquility Tennis Tourna-
ment Victoria Avenue, Port of Spain as Nabeel Mohammed
and Javier Lewis both bowed out in the quarter-finals.
On court one Jamaica's Damion Johnson secured a place in the
semis by whipping Mohammed 6-2, 6-3 and later his countryman
Rowland Phillips joined him in the round of four by
disposing of T&T's Lewis in two straight sets 6-0
and 6-2 on court two. Later Richard Chung booked
his place in the semis by beating Adam Escalante
in an all-TT quarter-final; play-off.
And in the Veteran Singles Dion Auguste made
light work of Hayden Salim 6-0, 6-1 for the right to
progress to the semis.
Meanwhile the pair of Richard Chung and Jerome
Ward advanced to the second round of the Men's Dou-
bles on Monday afternoon after defeating Guillermo
Gomes and Le Von Sylvester in straight sets 6-2, 6-2.
The pair held their nerves after a heavy downpour threatened to
stall proceedings earlier, but when clearance was given, the pair
immediately went on to perform their demolition job, clobbering
their opponents 6-2 in the first set, and then made sure of a place in
the second round by whipping them by a similar margin on court one.
On court two there was also victory for pair of Vernon Lewis of
St Lucia and Jamaica's Damion Johnson, who prevailed over the
T&T duo of Brandon Gregoire and Brandon Tom 6-4, 6-1 which
highlighted T&T's struggles against their Caribbean opponents
on the day.
Later it was a similar song when T&T's Ethan Jeary and Samuel
West came up against the pair of Antigua's Kevin Gardener
and Rowland Phillips of Jamaica, as the local men went
down 6-3 in the opening set and surrendered the match
with a 6-2 result in the second.
In another match the team of Dexter Mahase and
Kristyan Valentine also progressed to the second round
by beating Che Andrews and Clint Singh 6-3 and 7-5.
Miller blames poor batting,
KINGSTON, JAMAICA---Jamaica Scorpions cap-
tain, Nikita Miller, said his side paid the price for
their poor battingbut also blamedthe pitch forits
role in the defeat to Leeward Islands Hurricanes
in the seventh round of the Regional four-day
championship on Sunday.
Playingin the day/night contest at Sabina Park,Scor-
pions were bowled out for 56 in their first innings---their
lowest-ever total in the history of first class competition---to
concede a lead of 15 runs. Asked to chase 149 for victory after
Hurricanes chalked up 133 in their second innings, Scorpions
collapsed for 114 to lose by 34 runs.
"I am not happy. I am very disappointed because we
shouldn't have lost that game," Miller lamented.
"We lost based on the fact that our first innings total of
56 runs was very unacceptable, even on that pitch, that to-
tal is very unacceptable. With that said, I think the pitch
played a very huge role in the outcome because it was
under-prepared at first-class status. But we could have
batted a little better because the pitch was a little better
for batting in the second innings, but I think we didn't
show enough fight and it led to the loss."
The defeat for Scorpions was their second on the
trot since the resumption of the tournament earlier
this month, after they also went down last week by
seven wickets to two-time defending champions and
tournament leaders, Guyana Jaguars.
Scorpions, who led the standings at the mid-season
break for the Regional Super50, have now slumped
to fourth on 63 points with three games remaining,
and Miller told the Observer newspaper here his side
needed to make the most of the upcoming fixtures even
though the title was now virtually out of reach.
"Unfortunately, we are back at square one because we had a good
run at the top of the season and in the Super-50, but like I said, we
have to pick ourselves up, keep our heads up, believe
in ourselves some more and try to finish the season
on a high," the left-arm spinner stressed.
"So I am expecting significant improvement
going forward. I don't believe we can win the title
from here ... mathematically it is possible, but it will
require a high level of consistency in both bowling
and batting departments. Scorpions travel to Port-
of-Spain to take on Trinidad and Tobago Red Force
in the eighth round of the tournament beginning
Friday at Queen's Park Oval.
