A clean sweep against Trinidad & Tobago today for The Bahamas Davis Cup Team. The competition got off to a great start with Kevin Major Jr. leading the way. Despite his first appearance on the court, there were no nerves present as Kevin sliced his way through the competition. In the first set, Kevin beat Luke De Caires 6-2. However, De Caires answered with a win in the second 6-3. Nonetheless, Kevin regrouped and overpowered De Caires in the third set in splendid fashion 6-1. Spencer Newman played next and dealt with Akiel Duke 6-3,6-1. With the win in the bag, The Bahamas still give a good showing by winning the doubles 6-3 6-2. Spencer and Marvin Rolle continue to hone their chemistry and were victorious over Chung and De Caires of Trinidad.
