“The upcoming tour we are about playing there is no prize money, it is a sakora tournament we are going to play now but everyone is talking about the prize money yet we haven’t gotten a good answer, I don’t know what is going on now. We want to tell the big men in the country to come and support tennis and they need to come and watch good tennis during their leisure. I don’t think we have money in our coffers, we need the support for now”. He added.
Johnson Acquah also shared his readiness ahead of the TPG tours on January 25, 2022
I’ve been going to the beach every morning before I go to the tennis. I am well prepared to win everything this year, so I am doing all I’m supposed to do to get healthy to face everything on the court. Last year I was not focused, I had issues at home so all these stuffs played against me. My mind was not on the court sometimes when I am playing.
In order to recapture Ghana’s top seed, Johnson Acquah says he will be looking forward to a successful tour this year.
