I Aim At Being The 1st Nigerian To Win A Tennis Grand Slam - 12 Year Old Marylove

Wonders are known for breaking limits at an early age, and that is surely what Nigerian tennis star, Marylove Edwards (@maryloveedwards), is doing. 

At 12 years of age, she as of now has her name in the ladies singles tennis positioning of the Nigeria Tennis Federation (NTF). She was quite recently as of late positioned fourth, and no player her age has ever come this nearby.

Marylove achieved this feat following her outstanding performance at the just concluded CBN Senior Championship in Lagos. She came into the championship as a wildcard but caused a shock by beating three older players to finish second.
Edwards who has the Williams sisters as her role model, says she's ready to work very hard to actualise her life dream – to become the first Nigerian female Tennis player to win the Grand Slam.
Marylove has won several titles including the Central Bank of Nigeria Open- U12 Category, the Lagos State All Secondary School event, Ikoyi Club Junior Open, NNPC Junior Open (U14), SNEPCO Junior Open, Midwestern Oil and Gas Junior Open and Gauteng North Belgrave Sportsmans Warehouse Tournament South Africa.
She's definitely a talent we all should be proud of...
