Dzidzienyo's silver medal and Nartey's commendable showing exemplify Ghana's dedication to promoting and nurturing talent in wheelchair tennis. Their achievements not only reflect their individual excellence but also inspire other athletes with disabilities to pursue their sporting aspirations. With continued support and determination, Ghana's wheelchair tennis athletes are poised for further success on the international stage.
