Joseph Imeh, Sylvester Emmanuel, Emmanuel Audu and Michael Michael are the only Nigerians in the Main Draw, with only Michael getting a wild card to compete while the rest had to go through qualifying series.
|Sylvester is up against the tournament's number six seed. Can he do the impossible?|
Audu, who plays the first match today,will also have to be firm against Remi Boutillier as Michael faces an uphill task against Jaimee Floyd Angele to justify the wild card given to him by the organisers of the competition.
In other matches, Emmanuel Idoko and Christian Paul will rely on home support and their ingenuity to see off second seed in the Doubles, Markus Eriksson and Maximilian Neuchrist.
