Hour Sreypov steps up on a winning note

Unbeaten in tournament play for well over a year in the under-14 category, Hour Sreypov’s amazing run extended to her first title win in the girls under-18 singles in the season opening National Junior Tennis Championships at the National Training Center on Sunday.

Hour Sreypov handled the step up to this group with no trouble as she powered her way to a 6-1, 6-2 win in the final over school-mate Ith Leakhena

Ho Sreynuch, who often remained in the shadow of Hour Sreypov in the U14 pool, stepped out into the bright light by bagging her first title. Sreynuch, who is from Sunrise Orphanage, scored a 4-2,5-3 win over Eang Kunthea of Koh Krabei in the final.

In the boys under-18s final, Sreum Kakada bounced back from a first set loss to post a 5-7, 6-1, 6-3 win over Chheang Vannasith, who was among the many newcomers to this category. This was Kakada’s maiden win in this group and he used his vast experience to wear down his much younger rival.

The boys under-14s final saw a long and intense duel between Khleang Punlok and Leng Sarinreach. The two were teammates representing Cambodia in the ITF Development event for their age group in Vietnam last month and both showed that the trip had done them the world of good. Punlok was fully stretched by Sarinreach before winning 7-5, 2-6, 6-4.

Sam Davith took the top honours in the boys under-12 flight A, beating Sen Saukeng 7-5, 6-0 in the final while Nel Samnang got the measure of Reut Touit 6-4, 6-1 in the Flight B final.
