RWANDA’s top two seeds Jean Claude Gasigwa and Dieudonne Habiyambere will meet in the final of the inaugural Nyarutarama Open tennis tournament on September 2 after winning their respective semi-final matches over the weekend.

Number two seed Habiyambere was the first to book his place in the final of the men’s professional category on Saturday after seeing off sixth-seeded Olivier Havugimana in straight sets 6-4, 6-1.

And on Sunday, top seed Gasigwa ended third-seed Olivier Nkunda’s dream to win the tournament after beating him in two straight sets 6-2, 7-6.

Habiyambere told Times Sport on Monday, “I am glad to reach the final of the inaugural tournament, and I am going to prepare well between now and September 2 in order to claim the title.”

“Gasigwa will be the favourite to win the title  but I will also be there to play my best game,” he added.
