Rising Cambodian tennis star Bun Kenny saw his run in the Thailand F1 Futures in Khon Kaen end on Wednesday with an agonisingly close defeat to Simon Cauvard of France. Kenny, who was given a wild card entrance into the main draw, pushed the eighth seeded Frenchman to tie-breaks in both sets of their second round match but let his composure slip to lose 7-6, 7-6 and with it the chance of becoming the first Cambodian to play in a Men’s Futures quarterfinals.
