Garanganga hits bad patch

HARARE - Zimbabwe tennis ace Takanyi Garanganga failed to make an impact after dropping out in the early stages of three different competitions in the United States recently.

Garanganga was knocked out of the Tallahassee Challenger in the first round after going down to Mico Santiago of US, 6-2 6-4.

The US-based tennis player also failed to impress at the St. Joseph's/Candler Savannah Challenger ATP Challenger Tour after he bowed out in the final stage of the qualifiers last week.

The Zimbabwean received a first round bye before beating Facundo Mena of Argentina 7-6(6), 6-2 in the second round of the qualifiers.

However, Garanganga’s run was cut short by Guillermo Duran also from Argentina, who emerged with a 6-2, 6-3 win in the last round of the tournament qualifiers.

Before the Savannah Challenger the Mbare-born tennis star also put a disappointing performance at the Fayez Sarofim and Co. U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship.

Garanganga bowed out of the first round of the tournament after suffering a 6-4, 6-2 at the hands of Denis Kudla of the US.
