Bun Kenny ousted in first round of Futures

Third-seeded Roman Jebavy of the Czech Republic overcame a scorching first set tie-break to down Cambodia’s Bun Kenny 7-6, 6-2, in the men’s singles first round of the ITF Futures at the Bac Lieu Club court in Vietnam late on Tuesday.

The Cambodian right hander, who had got through the qualifying round with ease, had several chances to get a hold on the first set but the Czech managed to fight himself back every time he was down.

Kenny was to partner Taiwan’s Yu Cheng-Yu in his second round doubles encounter yesterday evening, the pair fighting for a place in the semi-finals.
