Bun Kenny gets second bite at German Becker

Cambodian tennis No 1 Bun Kenny will take on sixth seed Richard Becker, of Germany, today in the first round of the Thailand ITF Men’s Futures at the Rama Garden Sports Complex in Bangkok.

The pairing is particularly significant in the light of Bun Kenny’s 3-6, 6-7 loss to the German in a pre-quarterfinal last week.

“I blew many chances last time against Richard Becker in that tight second-set tie break. I am confident of a better show this time,” the Cambodian Davis Cup pivot told the Post.

For the third week in a row, Bun Kenny had to go through the double-round qualifiers.

Over the weekend, he enjoyed a relatively easy passage beating Singapore’s Roy Hobbs 6-1, 6-1 in the first round and following it up with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Thailand’s Wishava Trongchaorenchakul.

This has so far been Kenny’s best two weeks on the road, having picked up an ATP point in each of the last two Futures in Bangkok.

His current ATP points tally stands at seven, and he is ranked 1,203rd in the world.
