NATIONAL champion Marika Matanatabu is the top seed in Squash Fiji's Fintel/Kidanet tournament that started on Tuesday.

Competition official Isimeli Cerelala said Matanatabu would play his first match today.

"And he is in top form after winning the New Caledonia Open U19 title recently," he said.

"He is one of those players attempting to impress national selectors for the squad for the 2015 Pacific Games that would be held in Papua New Guinea."

Meanwhile, 40 players are competing in the tournament at Victoria Courts and Defence Club.

"On Tuesday, the biggest upset was when Savusavu's Tige Young beat Bruce Southwick in the A-grade competition."

Competition was expected to heat up as they get closer to the finals that will be played over the weekend.

Squash Fiji will also host their annual general meeting after the tournament where the new national logo and uniform will be revealed.
