Kenyan Junior, Amon Muinde, a beneficiary of the African Sport and Education Fund, ensured that for the first time in three years, a Kenyan boy made the finals of the Smashers Challenge Cup in the Under 16s category, showing hope that the country can equal others in talent. Amon who beat top African junior (and also fund beneficiary), Henry Ayesiga (Uganda) 4/6,6/1[5-10] in the group stages, struggled through the first set, to lose 6/0, before rallying to fight back, losing in a close 5/7 in the second and final set.  Henry, in his element today, had earlier won a tough match against top Kenyan junior, Olivier Kigotho 6/2 6/4 in the quarterfinals, then stopped upcoming talent Sada Nahimana 6/1 6/0 in the semi-finals.
In the boys 14s finals, Anthony Owiti slipped past Davis Matanda (Kenya), 7/6(3) 6/3 in a close encounter that lasted a little over 2 hours.
The Smashers Challenge Tournament is part of a series of challenges for junior players of intermediate to advanced level, and is recognized by the Tennis Africa Cup.
