THE national tennis selectors will be keeping tabs on players vying for a spot for the 2015 Pacific Games during the Fiji Open Championship which stars in Nadi tomorrow.

United States-based Tarani Kamoe who is back in the country on a holiday is one of the frontrunners to make the final cut.

Kamoe has a career best junior world ranking of 427 which she achieved in July last year.

Fiji Tennis Association vice president Naga Reddy said Kamoe would be the player to watch.

"Tarani won the women's open singles title in 2012 but lost in the final to Marcia Tere-Apisah last year."

"She has been playing well for the Georgia State University and is ranked in the top six in the singles category. Tarani is one of our top contenders for next year's Pacific Games in Papua New Guinea."

The tournament has attracted many overseas players.

Reddy said all the overseas players would be in the country this evening.

"There will be 41 events so a lot of tennis will be played in six days," he said.

The sponsors are Sports World, Anchorage Beach Resort, Tatts Lotto, Fiji Water, Fiji Gas and Tourism Fiji. Matches will start at 8am at the Denarau Golf and Racquet Club.
