Dzuwa in false start

HARARE - Zimbabwe’s top tennis player, Martin Dzuwa failed to impress on the second day of the Twenty Third Century Systems ITF Futures Tournament here yesterday.

The Zimbabwe Davis Cup team captain lost 6-2, 6-0 to third-seeded South African Turker Vorster in a men’s singles match.

“I played my best and the tournament was OK, but the guy is a big server so I couldn’t make the returns. At the end of the day it was difficult for me to break his serve,” Dzuwa said.

“He is a good player, I tried my best so I just have to work hard for the next match and see how it goes it was a tough draw for me.”

Dzuwa added: “I think a bit of more fitness would do the trick for me. My strategy  was  OK, it  was working  at  the  beginning but I couldn’t maintain it in the second set and he made returns I couldn’t reach. I hope I will get a better draw next week, this was a tough draw to play the third seed in the first round.”

On Monday, Zimbabwe’s Mark Fynn and Tinashe Chikanda progressed to the second round of the tournament after posting victories on the opening day.

Fynn posted a convincing straight-sets win against his fellow countryman Miracle Matanga 6-1, 6-0 while Chikanda struggled to overcome South Africa’s Rayne Roselt 6-4, 7-5.

The players competing in the tournament have been drawn from other countries like France, Japan, South Africa, Germany, Spain, Croatia, Poland, Argentina, the Netherlands and the United States.
