NestoP and Knowles back

on their winning form

* MARK Knowles and Canadian Daniel Nestor have found their form again

Senior Sports Reporter
MARK Knowles and Canadian
Daniel Nestor seemed to have found
the winning formula on the ATP men's
doubles circuit at the Delray Beach
Tennis Center & Stadium in Delray
Beach, Florida.
After coming from "Down Under"
with two consecutive first round exits in
Australia, including the first Grand
Slam of the year at the Australian
Open last month, Knowles and Nestor
secured their first straight two victo-
ries at the Delray Beach International
Tennis Championships.
"It feels good obviously," said
Knowles in an interview from Delray
Beach. "It's good to get back on the

Doubles duo secure first straight two victories

winning track because we had a rough
time in Australia.
"We're going to take it one match at
a time, but we felt it was only a matter
of time before we are winning, again.
We feel good about the way we've
been playing so far."
As the top seeded men's doubles
team in the $380,000 prize money
tournament that they are playing for
the first time since its inception in
1993, Knowles and Nestor got by the

team of American Kevin Kim and
Korean Hyung-Taik Lee 6-7 (4), 6-
2, 10-2 in the first round on Wednes-
On Thursday, Knowles and Nestor
came back and eliminated the Ameri-
can team of Ramon Delgado and Oliv-
er Patience in identical scores of 6-1
and 6-1 in the second round.
Knowles and Nestor will play the
winner of the match between No 4
seeds Jeff Coetzee of the Republic of

South Africa and Netherlands' Rogier
Wassen versus the team of Australian
Oliver Marach and Czech's Cyril Suk
in the semi-final on Saturday.
"We will try to win that match and
try to pull this one off on Sunday," he
said. "We're excited to have pulled off
two in a row, but we're really looking
forward to the rest of the tournament
this weekend."
Only 16 teams are participating in
the tournament, which is limited to just

four rounds. The final is scheduled for
Sunday. The winners will collect
$52,000 to share and 35 ATP race
The victory on Wednesday snapped
a stunning six-match losing streak for
Knowles and Nestor, who fell victims
to the American Bryan twin brothers
in the Paris final and the three round-
robin matches that they played in the
season ending Tennis Masters Cup in
Shanghai late last year.

College of the Bahamas to host basketball

tournament for tertiary institutions

Junior Sports Reporter
IN an attempt to bring tertiary insti-
tutions in the Bahamas together, the
College of the Bahamas (COB) will
host the 13th annual Dr Keva Bethel
Basketball classic.
The classic, which is dedicated sole-
ly to tertiary institutions, will begin on
Friday at the Sir Kendal Isaacs gym-
nasium at 4pm.

The opening day of play will feature
two games, while Saturday has more
than 12 games scheduled.
The two-day tournament will host
teams from the Bahamas Technical
and Vocational Institutions (both cam-
puses), Galilee College, Success Train-
ing College, and the host school, COB.
Tournament organiser Sean Bastian
is hoping that the tournament will give
the schools and players the extra play
they need, as the college looks to pro-

vide more tournaments for tertiary
Bastian said: "We are hoping that
the tournament will offer the teams
the much needed play they are looking
for, but most importantly, hosting the
tournament for just tertiary schools
will help us as we look towards pro-
viding this type of competition for
"This time the tournament is only
for tertiary schools, unlike the other

tournaments where we had teams from
high schools competing. We thought
that if we had single out the tourna-
ment it will assist with the college's
After wrapping-up the tournament,
a coaches clinic will be held at the
School of Hospitality and Tourism
This clinic is scheduled from
6pm-8pm and will be headed by
Bernard Thompson, a former Nation-

al Basketball Association (NBA) and
American Basketball Association
(ABA) player.
Thompson's last game in the NBA
was in 1989, and he was selected to as
the director of player development and
assistant coach in the ABA.
Bastian is hoping that coaches will be
able to benefit from the information
given by Thompson and that he can
assist with bettering the tournaments
