Top seeds, Conny Perrin, Tom Jomby, as well as Deniz Khazaniuk and Benjamin Lock, who are both seeded second in the men’s and women’s field, eased into the second round of the Lagos Open in Onikan on Tuesday.

Conny Perrin, who’s bidding for a fourth Lagos Open crown, defeated India’s Jennifer Luikham 6-4, 6-2 to advance

18-year-old Luikham had kept Perrin in check for most of the opening set, but the Swiss would get the crucial break in the ninth game to go 5-4 up, and from there onwards, there was no looking back. She stormed into a 4-0 lead in the second set and despite Luikham’s best effort to reduce the deficit, Perrin closed out the match with a comfortable hold in an hour and 40 minutes.

Perrin will next play Clothilde de Bernardi, who defeated Olga Brozda in three sets on Monday.
