Bun Kenny knocked out of Bangkok Futures

A fierce second-set fightback proved inadequate as Cambodia’s Bun Kenny went down 3-6, 6-7 to seventh-seeded Richard Becker of Germany in the second round of the ITF Men’s Futures at the Rama Garden Sports complex in Bangkok yesterday.

The 21-year-old Cambodian, who picked up his seventh ATP point on Monday following his straight-sets victory over Jean Andersen of South Africa, covered considerable ground in the second set, but the German came out on top of a tense tie-breaker.

“I couldnt get my timing right in the first set. But I played a lot better in the second. I had many chances to stay in the fight, but somehow I couldn’t cash them in,” Bun Kenny told the Post after his loss.

Kenny, who played a lead role last month in Cambodia’s promotion to Asia Oceania group III, had earned his sixth ATP point last week.
