Benjamin Lock still in hunt

HARARE – Benjamin Lock kept his hopes of a home soil tournament victory alive after dismissing France’s Roman Bauvy yesterday at Harare Sports Club.

The Florida State University student stormed into the semi-finals of the Zimbabwe F1 Futures tennis tournament after accounting for Bauvy in a tightly-contested quarter-final 6-2, 3-6, 6-1.

That victory set up a date with Evan King of the United States.

King came from a set down to dismiss South Africa’s Loyd Harris 6-7(3), 6-3, 6-1 to book his slot along Lock in the semi-finals. 

Lock had earlier fought fiercely to beat Portugal’s Vasco Mensurado 7-6(2), 6-2 in the second round of the $10 000 event.

In the first round, Lock beat Samuel Bothwell in a match he lost the first set 2-6 before showing his class by winning the next two 6-3, 6-2.

The 22-year-old recently clinched the Mozambique F1 Futures at Clube de Tenis de in Maputo and is hoping to add another trophy to his cabinet.
