Moldovan star among 9 at pre-season camp

Moldovian sensation Radu Albot has joined Thailand’s top player Danai Udomchoke and five of his compatriots in a one-week pre-season training camp being conducted by the Tennis Federation of Cambodia’s technical director Braen Aneiros at the National Training Center.

After rain washed out Tuesday’s planned opening session, training began in right earnest yesterday morning.

Cambodian Davis Cuppers Bun Kenny and Long Samneang complete the nine-player line-up.

Currently ranked 170 in the world, Albot is heading to Melbourne to play in the Australian Open qualifiers next month and is using the camp for extensive preparations.

The Rattiwatana twins, Sanchai and Sonchat, have been training under Braen Aneiros for over three years and are ranked 39 in world doubles. The pair have set their sights on an event in Brisbane.

Thailand’s No.2, Kittipong Wachiramanowong, who figured in the recently concluded Cambodian Futures series, is also in the camp with fellow Thais Punn Bodhidatta and Suthinan Tantahseraneewat.

“This pre-season training camp is very helpful for these players to get ready for the 2014 season wherever they choose to go,” Aneiros told the Post.

“For Cambodian Davis Cup players Bun Kenny and Long Samneang, it is a good opportunity to practise with players of such high level and sharpen their reflexes.”
