WORLD-RANKING POINTS, pride, and bragging rights are at stake this morning when two friends square off in the final of the FirstCaribbean International Tennis tournament.

Yohansey Williams, the No.3 seed from Trinidad and Tobago, meets Bahamian Jamal "Ducky" Adderley, the No.2 seed, in the play-off for the Boys' Under-18 singles title and 40 points that goes with the package.

A testing and exciting encounter is expected after the big-hearted Williams eliminated No.1 seed Uriel Oquendo in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, in yesterday's semi-finals.

Williams hit the court with guns blazing and pressured the Colombian with a big serve and aggressive groundstrokes which surprisingly dismantled Oquendo's usually steady game.

Adderley, playing a consistent game of percentage tennis, was more clinical in his 6-1, 6-2 ouster of Trinidadian Michael Clarke, the No.7 seed.

"My plan was to be aggressive and win the first set. I felt I could hold serve in the second and wait for a break worked for me," said Williams. < Read more >

Compliments of the Nation News

TOP SEED Uriel Oquendo of Colombia is into two semi-finals and in search of two titles on his first trip to Barbados.

Rated among the Top 300 in the world in the Boys' Under-18 Division, Oquendo cruised into today's singles semi-finals of the First Caribbean International Tennis Tournament with a clinical 6-2, 6-2 victory over American Jack Boling.

"I think I'm playing well and my aim is to win," he said.

The 17-year-old Oquendo, the son of a former hitting partner of the late tennis legend Arthur Ashe, again appeared in cruise control as he clinically ended the ambitions of Boling.

He will meet Trinidadian Yohansey Williams, the No. 3 seed, in the semis, while No. 2 Jamal Adderley of The Bahamas opposes Michael Clarke of Trinidad.

Adderley, who is also into semi-finals in the doubles, easily eliminated Corey Huggins of St Vincent 6-4, 6-0. Williams defeated Kirill Kasyanov of the United States 6-1, 3-6, 6-1, while his compatriot Michael Clarke was in more outstanding form, ending the run of Italian Barnabas Carrega in straight sets 6-4, 6-1. < Read more >

April 10 2006 Compliments of the Barbados Advocate

Yohansey Williams Trinidad and Tobago's tennis star defeating in straight sets by Bahamian Jamal Adderley who emerged champion of the 2006 First Caribbean International Junior tennis tournament on Saturday,
Showing little flair but dogged on court, the 16-year-old Bahamian produced a steady game to win 6-2, 6-2 in the final and collected 40 crucial world-ranking points.

Adderley, the No. 2 seed, produced a solid game that Williams found difficult to counter.

Williams was under pressure from the first game, when he dropped serve, and was never allowed to control the match as his opponent hit a steady mix of top-spin and slices.

After taking the first set, Adderley pressed home the advantage in the second as he broke Williams in the fifth game to lead 3-2.

Before the start of the sixth game, Williams sought attention for an injured knee he earlier sustained while chasing an unreturnable forehand from the Bahamian.

However, Adderley was unfazed and held serve for a 4-2 lead before breaking his opponent again in the seventh game for a 5-2 lead. < Read more >
