Marylove Edwards unfazed by AJC’s scalp

Marylove Edward

TVCE (SPORTS) – Not minding the defeat she suffered in the final of the girls singles’ U-14 event at the just concluded International Tennis Federation (ITF) African Junior Championship qualifying tournament, 10 year-old sensation, Marylove Edwards is set to battle for the title against the country’s best players at the Ikoyo Club Tennis Masters.

However, Edwards has taken consolation in the fact her efforts earned her a place in the Team Nigeria taking part at the main AJC holding in Pretoria, South Africa come March.

“I think I have put the loss to Oyinlomo Quadre in the final of AJC aside and I am focused on the Ikoyi Club Masters where I got a wildcard to compete. I played better in the final but my opponent was just lucky to win. I think my happiness is that I was able to qualify for the AJC in South Africa where I will be competing for Nigeria outside the country for the first time. This alone has given me hopes that there is always another time for us to face each other in final. But my aim at the Masters is to surprise everybody and hope to improve on my performance in readiness for the AJC in March,” she said.
