Zim Star Storms into Semis

Benjamin Lock stormed into the semi-finals of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Futures Tournament following a straight sets win over Nicholas Scholtz of South Africa.

Lock blew his opponent on a windy day at Harare Sports Club.

Despite facing the tournament’s second seed, Lock put up a classy performance which saw him eliminate Sholtz.

It took 42 minutes for Lock to win the first set 6-3.

The Zimbabwe Davis Cup player maintained the positive momentum and claimed the second set 6-4 to book a berth in the semi-finals of the ITF futures.

After winning his maiden ITF futures crown in Mozambique last year, Lock remains hopeful of claiming the ITF crown on home soil.

In other encounters, top seed Lloyd Harris crashed out of the ITF futures after a 5-7, 2-6 defeat against Michael Grant of the United States.

Marc Polmans and Hugo Nyc also earned semi-final berths.
