Quadre Clinches ITF Circuit Titles

Oyinlomo Quadre claimed her second ITF Junior title of the season at the weekend as she cruised past Vipasha Mehra of India 6-2, 6-1 in the final.

The Nigerian prime seed produced a powerful performance as she established a comfortable lead all through the match to highlight her remarkable form heading to the end of the season.

Quadre took control of the early exchanges with some outstanding play, leaving Mehra, who had been invincible by not  losing any set in the week-long tournament, looking short of ideas against the reigning CBN Open champion.

Mehra, the 2nd seed, had put together an astonishing 25-3 win-loss record this year and was bidding for her 4th title in her 5th final on the circuit this season, but couldn’t get to grips with Quadre’s flawless display.

It’s been a remarkable campaign for Quadre, who claimed the doubles title on Friday, with her partner, Yasmin Ezzat of Egypt, and has now capped it off with the singles crown.

Meanwhile, in the boys’ singles final, Abayomi Philips fell in straight sets to home favourite and top seed, Sylvester Monnou.

In his third final in a space of a month, Philips, who was targeting his second title on the circuit this year after his triumph in Accra last month, was defeated 6-1, 6-2, with Monnou proving too much for the 17-year-old on home soil.
