Nigeria’s Oyinlomo Quadre beat Egypt’s Maria Charl 6-3, 6-3 in the second round of the Under-16 African Junior Tennis Championship in Hammamet, Tunisia on Wednesday.
The 15 year old did more than enough to advance to the quarter-finals where she will face unseeded home favourite, Jeribi Gheida on Thursday.
After the game, Quadre told Nigeria Tennis Federation media, ntftennis.com, she owes her good run this week to consistency.
“The secret is just consistency. This year has been really hard but I am just determined to stay consistent and keep going no matter what.”
The youngster admitted that her next opponent won’t be a push over despite being unseeded for the tournament.
“Gheida is not seeded but she is also a good player. I think this is the toughest AJC I have played so far, there are hard matches from the first round,” she said.
In the doubles event, Quadre and Angela Okutoyi recorded 6-4, 6-2 victory to reach the semi-finals of the event.
The duo will play against Sara Akid and Yasmine Kabbaj both from Morocco.
