21-year-old Hugo Largo competing at the Tombim Abuja Open for the third straight year gave out racket strings to little kids, who are taking up the sport, at the National Tennis Centre in Abuja.
Largo who is passionate about tennis said “I came in last two years and the little kids always ask for strings, not for money, not for any other thing, And I realized that it’s difficult for them to get strings and it’s very expensive here.
So, I decided that since I like tennis, it’s very nice to see little kids in this country have passion to play tennis.”
“So, I decided to buy a few strings from Spain. It’s a bit cheaper there, so I’m happy to help them continue playing tennis.”
The gesture, which was appreciated by everyone present, including the President of the Nigeria Tennis Federation, was borne out of a desire to help the kids, who are showing great passion for the game, keep up their play.
The young Spaniard will take on India’s Arjun Kadhe in the first round tomorrow.
