Cadogan, Chung through
to tennis semi-finals
...De Caires booted out
Joe Cadogan, who dominated local tennis in
the past, has returned to do the same. Yesterday
he made giant step towards achieving this at
the Bmobile Open Nationals at the Racquet
Centre in Tacarigua yesterday by advancing to
the semi-finals, courtesy a victory over Keshan
Moonasar in the Men's Singles.
But defending champion Luke De Caires was
booted out of the tournament by an unfamiliar
Vaughn Wilson on court six. De Caires, who has
been unbeaten for the tourney so far, went down
in the opening set 6-3 but he battled back in the
second set to level the game by claiming the win by
a similar 6-3 result. Wilson however put foot to the
pedal in the final set by holding off his counterpart
7-5 for the right to play in the round of four.
Cadogan and Wilson were joined in the semifinals
by Richard Chung who pulled off a hard-fought 6-3,
7-6(4) triumph over Jerome Ward in the quarter-fi-
nal round of action. But yesterday Cadogan, who
brushed aside the opportunity to continue his career
on the professional circuit to play at home, showed
his class under cool conditions at the new state-
of-the art facility by defeating Moonasar 6-1, 6-0,
hardly breaking a sweat on his way to the final four.
However, he faces his sternest test ahead, as the
country's top players are also in contention for the
title. Among them the under-achieving Akile Duke,
who also had a slow start before recovering to earn
a place in the semifinals on court 12 at the expense
of a fighting Dexter Mahase.
Duke whose impressive performances through-
out the year has earned him the position as top player
in T&T, went down in his opening set 2-6 from a
battling Mahase. Duke fought back though to take
the second set 6-4, before wrapping up the match
6-1 in the final match.
Duke will now face Cadogan in today's semifinals
while Wilson will come up against Chung.
Among the Women's Singles, Shenelle Moham-
med will have a date with Breana Stampfli in the first
semifinal and the unstoppable Carlista Mohammed
will square-off with Abigail Jones in the other.
In another match yesterday, Rickey Villaroel pro-
gressed to the Veterans Singles final with a com-
fortable 6-0, 6-0 victory over Frank Ramudit on
