TWO Ugandan were beaten in the opening round of the ITF Menâ€™s Futures tennis Circuit at Lugogo yesterday. Charles Senyanja, who got a wild card, was the first to go after a 6-0 6-0 defeat against Britainâ€™s Benjamin George Levi in 55 minutes.
Levi launched a series of baseline shots to put his Ugandan rival on the receiving end.
Senyanja however will receive $175 (sh0.295m) for his appearance but no ranking points.
Seed two Gabriel Moraru from Romania sent another Uganda and a wild card entry John Oyet packing 6-0, 6-0 in a one-sided affair on court two. Oyet also got sh0.295m but no points.
Ugandaâ€™s hope in the singles lies in Herbert Buyinza who faces seed four Victor Leonte of Romania today.
The home boys also have a chance in the doubles where Uganda is drawn against Ireland.
The top seed Matwe Middelkoop from the Netherlands, who won singles title in the Rwanda leg, starts his campaign today.
