Nawa Jaca in epic final

12 Apr 2024

 A mother of all battles is expected as two tennis players, Mark Nawa and South Africa's Siyabonga Jaca meet in the ITF World Tennis Tour J30 final at the National Tennis Centre on April 13. 

Nawa beat Mpho Leshoele of Lesotho 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 in a nerve-racking semi final match, while Jaca beat his country man Heinrich Rootman 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 to book a space in the final.

In their previous two meetings, Jaca prevailed. And this time around, Nawa is not prepared to lose again.

“I made it to the final of the same tournament and I failed to win. I think the time is now,” he said.

Nawa said he was cognizant of the fact that Jaca was good adding that this time he was confident of winning the title which eluded him many times.

“Batswana should expect a good match. I am more determined and I really want to win,” he said. ENDS
