Girls carve it up on court in 2011 Open

The dominance of Tie Heng May and Kim Dara in the girls U12 category of the 2011 Cambodian Open tennis tournament continued yesterday with both winning their third straight match of the group stage at the National Training Centre.

Before rain cut into the day’s busy schedule, Kim Dara made short work of Tie Heng Shes 4-2, 4-2  in Group A while Tie Heng May was equally impressive in her 4-2, 4-0 win over Seoun Sowanary in Group B.

With one more fixture left to be played, both Heng May and Dara are certain to head their respective groups.

One sided matches were the order of the day when the Junior U18 event got underway in the afternoon. In Group A, Kan Sophon blanked out Net Samnang in the first set and dropped one game in the second to wrap up a quick win, but Orn Sambath was even more miserly in Group B trouncing Samong Mony Udom 6-0, 6-0.

In the same group, Ek Chamroeun completed a 6-0, 6-1 victory over Touch Sothearoth.
