The top juniors in the Caribbean and Central America have converged in El Salvador for the U16 Junior International Championships(JITIC) .
Bahamain Jacobi Bain has emerged as one of the best in the region as he has secured a ticket into the finals today.
A consummate tennis player, Jacobi came into the Main Draw in El Salvador ranked #1 overall after playing round-robin. Seemingly he has catapulted himself through the quarterfinals and semifinals easily with wins over Costa Rican Julian Lozano 6-1 7-6(5) and Kaipo Marshall from Barbados 6-2 6-0.
The finals will be played today as Jacobi matches up against a formidable opponent from Costa Rica Christian Winstead. However, Jacobi is well able to meet the competition as he has not dropped a set in tournament play to date.
The Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association(BLTA) congratulates Jacobi on a successful tournament thus far and for reaching the finals in a very convincing fashion. We hope he meets with even greater success today.
Let us cheer him on!
