Le Man, Vietnam’s lone survivor in the second round of the U18 singles of the Tep Khunnah Memorial tennis tournament, proved cannon fodder for local youngster Ek Chamroeun, who worked up a blistering pace to emerge a 6-0, 6-0 winner at the National Training Centre yesterday.

In the day’s other U18 match between two local lads, Kan Sophon dropped just one game in the first set and then blanked out Touch Sothearoth 6-1, 6-0 to make the next stage.

Focus now shifts to the showpiece event of the week, the Super Singles which starts today, with national team members Bun Kenny and Orn Sambath joining four other highly rated players from neighbouring Thailand and Vietnam.

The national No 1 Bun Kenny heads group A with Benjamas Pongsatorn of Thailand and Mai Thanh Dong of Vietnam. Orn Samabath is clustered with Ton That Minh of Vietnam and Timo Sivapruksa of Thailand. The first phase is a round robin with the top two playing criss cross semifinals. The final is scheduled for Sunday.
