Bun Kenny advances in Thai Futures event

Cambodia's Davis Cup spearhead Bun Kenny picked up another valuable ATP point yesterday, his second in two weeks and seventh overall, following his 6-3, 6-4 first round victory over South Africa’s Jean Andersen in the second ITF Men’s Futures at the Rama Garden Sports Complex in Bangkok.

After breezing through his qualifying rounds over the weekend, the 21-year old right hander, who is ranked 1,130, was in an aggressive mood, dominating the court against the 953-ranked South African in an hour-long contest.

Kenny will take on Seventh seeded German Richard Becker for a quarter-final place tomorrow.

“It was quite tough but I had it under control most of the way. Right now I am feeling good about my game,” Kenny told the Post after his victory.
