Nigeria’s Quadri Aruna is a finalist for the 2017 Nigerian Sportsman of the Year along with Victor Moses of the English Premier League and Ike Diogu who is a former member of the Golden State Warriors.

I played Quadri Aruna at the 2017 LA Open and was losing 11-4 and then was down 5-1 in the 2nd game as was likely trying to do too much and making too many unforced errors. Then I slowed down and the points were 17-16 in his favor after that.
