Ogunsakin, Nigeria's Tennis Prodigy, Makes a Giant Leap in ITF Rankings

Posted : 14 May 2024

Seun Ogunsakin’s impressive outing in the J30 tennis championship in Tunisia continues to attract the right attention, solidifying his status as an undisputed Nigerian tennis prodigy.


His championship-winning effort in Tunisia over the weekend has translated into a 100-spot climb in the latest Junior ITF rankings released yesterday.


The former African No. 1 U-14 player won the J30 tournament in Tunisia without dropping a set, adding it to the two he previously won in Abuja earlier this year.


According to the latest rankings, the 15-year-old Ogunsakin is now 510th in the world, moving astronomically from the 611th spot he occupied prior to the commencement of the Tunisian tournament.


This new ranking is also the highest the Tunisia-based youngster has ever attained since he started playing ITF competitions a few years ago.


He now occupies 24th place in the log of African players in the ITF rankings and is closing the gap on Daniel Adeleye, Nigeria’s highest-ranked junior tennis player, who is currently ranked 332nd in the world.


Meanwhile, Ohunene Yakubu dropped 7 spots in the recent rankings after failing to reach the final of the J30 event held in Tunisia.


She currently sits as the 581st ranked junior player in the world and among the top 30 on the African continent as she continues with her tennis development at the ITF High-Performance Centre in Tunisia.
