Cambodian Open set for thrilling week

Vietnamese No 2-ranked Noelle Hyunh Mai Hyunh will play her first Cambodian Open match Wednesday at 3pm. TFC

THE weekend saw plenty of action in the Cambodian Open Tennis Tournament. Standout matches from the Men's draw saw Chhit Davin outclass Long Samnang 6-0, 6-1; Oun Sambath oust the player simply known as Kong 6-1, 6-0; Chris Forsinetti overwhelm Yi Puthea 6-0, 6-0; Ek Chamroeun push past Yi Keavirak 6-4, 6-3; and Sok Samath smash through Mattieu Babot 6-0, 6-1.

With the competition heating up towards the finals at the end of the week, the Tennis Federation of Cambodia (TFC) welcomes all interested parties to watch and encourage the players every day free of charge at the Cambodian Country Club (CCC), between 9am and 6pm.

A highlight Wednesday will be the appearance of Vietnamese star Noelle Hyunh Mai Huynh. The 24-year-old has been ranked No 2 in Vietnam for the past eight years, and has won two major events on the Asian tennis circuit; the Thailand Masters in December 2008, and the Pro Circuit Thailand Championship earlier this month.

Huynh has cancelled a tournament in her homeland to make the Cambodian Open, showing her support and commitment to Cambodian tennis. She will play in her first match at 3pm Wednesday at the CCC.
