Oyinlomo Quadre’s sensational run at the African Junior Closed Championships for Under 16s in Hammamet came to an end on Friday, as she was edged in straight sets by Yasmine Kabbaj of Morocco in the semifinals.

Quadre had progressed through the draw without the loss of a set, but in the semis couldn’t match the greater consistency of Kabbaj and lost 6-4, 6-4.

The young Nigerian will now turn her attention to the Grade 3 event in Megrine, Tunisia, which will get underway on Tuesday, 16 April at the Tennis Club de Megrine.
