Nigerian-born Michael Mmoh, 24-year-old, has earned the U.S. Tennis Association’s wild-card entries for the main draw of the French Open ahead of play which begins at Roland Garros on May 22.
Mmoh claimed his berth in the year’s second Grand Slam tournament by collecting the most ranking points during recent clay-court tournaments.
His results included making it to the quarterfinals after qualifying for the ATP U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship in Houston and reaching the final of a USTA Pro Circuit Challenger tournament in Tallahassee, Florida.
The Nigerian whose career-best ranking is No. 96, is currently No. 181.
Michael is the son of Tony Mmoh, a former professional tennis player who represented Nigeria and reached a career-high ranking of 105..
