Speaking to ghanatennis.org Felix Hammond described it as “one of the biggest wins of his career, I didn’t expect to be in this position at all. I’m happy, very happy.”

The two-time TPG champion Acquah also said, ‘To see Hammond back at this level, it’s amazing, I’m really happy for him, but sad I lost today’.

The 2020 TPG Tour 1 was sponsored by Boafo Amoakoh, a tennis enthusiast, who said, ‘I sponsored the TPG for the love for the game and also to motivate our current crop of players’.

“This is just the beginning of good things to come for Ghana tennis. I will fully come on Board to sponsor the 2nd TPG Tour 2 which is slated in March” Mr. Amoakoh added.
