Grand Slam winner Xavier Malisse took to the court last Thursday at the Barbados Tennis Centre as part of a youth development programme featured in the 2nd edition of the Barbados Cup Junior Tennis Tournament.

Malisse flew into the island after an invitation by Tournament Director of the Rogers Cup, Karl Hale, and the Caribbean Cup Series. The two have been working together throughout the Caribbean to promote the game of tennis. The tennis star, who has defeated the likes of Roger Federer and Raphael Nadal, put on a clinic for around 20 children. The Barbados Cup has attracted players from all around the world including China, Japan, United States and United Kingdom.
