Gasigwa played comfortably from start to finish to win his second Uganda Open Men Singles title with a 6-4, 6-1 demolition of Diue-Donne Habyambere at Kampala Club on Saturday.

In a showdown between Rwanda’s best tennis players, the second seeded Gasigwa overpowered his country man with a ruthless display, breaking him twice in each set to seal a victory in less than two hours.

Gasigwa ultimately beat Mugabe 6-4 7-6 (8-6) to progress to the final.
