Cambodian stars off to flying starts in KL Open

Cambodian Davis Cuppers Delton Sophana Kim and Long Samneang got off to winning starts in the Kuala Lumpur Open Tennis Championships yesterday in the initial rounds of the prestigious prize money event that falls outside the ITF’s regular calendar but is highly popular among players in the region.

Having drawn valuable matchplay experience from his recent ITF Junior Circuit rounds in Thailand, Delton Sophana Kim, who recently turned 16, punished Mohd Sabri Saman 6-0,6-0. After receiving a first round bye, the victory takes Kim to the third round.

Despite playing a notch below his best, Long Samneang pulled off a 6-1,6-1 win over Daniel A Farid and managed to hit better rhythm in his second round clash where he handed out a pair of bagels to Mohd Farzon.

One spot of bother for Delton Kim and Long Samneang is the fact that both are in the upper half of the draw and could end up meeting each other if they make it to the quarter-finals.
