Gyan to play Lamptey in Accra Tennis Open quarters
Gyan, who has played several times with the Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) Tennis Club top seed on hard court will have to test his sharpness against the energetic and hard-hitting abilities of Lamptey at 5pm.
Today’s game will also be the first competitive match between the duo on the clay court and Gyan is determined to show that he is not only skilled in football but also a good tennis player.
With technical direction from his elder brother, Baffour Gyan, the 35-year-old player could be a difficult nut to crack for Lamptey, a member of the TOR club who is expecting to be motivated by the support of his club members as he attempts to defeat Gyan.
Gyan had reached this stage of the competition after subjecting Korle Bu Tennis Club top seed, Williams Kwesi Amoo (Boboo) to a two-straight defeat in their thrilling encounter previously.
