Greenidge on losing end of upset


Share post:

TWO NIGHTS after setting the Silver Hill court ablaze in the Silver Hill Road Tennis Championship, the enigmatic Shibbir Greenidge suffered a blackout at the hands of secondary schoolteacher Dwayne Hope when the action heated up on Tuesday night.

Hope, who teaches mathematics and music at Frederick Smith Secondary, set a formula for Greenidge which the latter failed miserably 21-15, 17-21, 21-19 to once again highlight why he is often referred to as the Carl Hooper of road tennis.

Even after Greenidge dropped the first game and battled to elude a determined Hope, the large crowd of pro-Greenidge fans was confident that their man would pull through.

Mixing some solid defence with skilled counters, Greenidge blunted Hope’s aggression to even the contest. (KB)
