The national tennis team, Golden Rackets launched their Davis Cup zone IV campaign on a glittering start after ousting Ethiopia 3-0 in the opening match in Yaoundé, Cameroon.

The tournament began with No.2 seed Samuel Antwi ousting Ethiopia’s No.2 seed Abdella Nedim Mohammed 6-1,6-1. No.1 seed Isaac Nortey also put up an outstanding performance with a 6-4,6-3 win over Yabets Kebede.

In the doubles’ event, No.1 seed Isaac Nortey partnered with No.3 seed Johnson Acquah to beat Teame Gebresilase and Nedim Abdella Mohammed 6-4,6-4.

The emphatic win was a perfect response to Captain Frederick Egyir’s call on his boys to make “an ideal” start.

The Golden Rackets will now look forward to register another success against Senegal on Thursday to inch closer to their dream of qualifying to Euro/ Africa Zone III.
