Grace Nyanyuie Tomegah produced a stunning performance to beat Akua Akoma Hansen 6-3,2-6,6-0 in the Ladies Challenger Series final on Friday at the National Tennis Center, Accra.

The weeklong program was organized by Second Serve Tennis Shop, a subsidiary of Tennis Foundation Ghana with support from Bebiees Events and ITAKOL.

"I have to congratulate Akua. She played a wonderful match and she really pushed me," said Grace.

Grace gave up the first break of serve at 3-1 with three double faults, before reeling off five straight games as Akua Hansen racked up the errors bringing the set to an end at 6-3.

Two brilliant cross-court backhands gave Akua Hansen an early break in the second set. Grace recovered from 3-1 down but Akua Hansen maintained her momentum to win the second set 6-2. Grace went up 5-0 in the final set and served for the victory there.

The result means Grace Tomegah moves up to number 5 in the Tennis Foundation Ghana (TFG)/Ghana Tennis Federation (GTF) rankings.
