Cambodia’s leading Davis Cup hope, Bun Kenny, who won his two qualifying matches to make the main draw in the 2nd Vietnam ITF Men’s Tennis Futures, will face German qualifier Sebastian Wagner in the first round at the Pho To Tennis Club today.

Over the weekend, 11th seeded Kenny won both his qualifying round matches in straight sets. In the first round he dismissed Vietnamese wildcard Trung Hieu Nguyen 6-0, 6-3, while in the next he defeated Mark Fynn of Zimbabwe 6-3, 6-3.

In the 16-player doubles draw, Kenny and his new South Korean partner Jee Hwan Kim will be up against the top-seeded Czech pair of Roman Jebavy and Otakar Lucak.

It may be recalled that it was Jebavy who sent Kenny packing from the singles first round at the first Futures event in Bac Lieu. But the Cambodian Davis Cup pivot made it to the doubles semi-finals last week in the company of Taiwan’s Yu Cheng-Yu.
