TZ face-saver

A WEEK after announcing the cancellation of the flagship Zimbabwe Open, Tennis Zimbabwe (TZ) yesterday unveiled an invitational one-off tournament to involve the country’s top eight players this weekend.

TZ administrator Cliff Nhakwara said the $250 million tournament will start toda

y and run up to Sunday at Harare Sports Club.

He said eight players have confirmed their participation. These are Genius Chidzikwe, Gwinyai Tongoona, Pfungwa Mahefu, Mark Fynn, Stefan D’Almeida, Liberty Nzula, Tarik Ismail and Nigel Badza.

Last week TZ said in a press statement that it will not run the Zimbabwe Open due to the prevailing macro-economic problems in the country. — Staff Writer.
