Sarinreach plays beyond years for title

Leng Sarinreach, 13, continued his dominance over much older and more experienced rivals by winning the boys under-18 singles title in the fourth National Junior Tennis Championships, which concluded at the National Tennis Center on Sunday, beating arch rival Khleang Ponlok 6-2, 6-2 in the final.

On his way to the decider, Sarinreach got past Tep Timothy, while Ponlok put out Chheang Vannasak. All four semifinalists were part of the Cambodian squad at the eighth ASEAN School Games in Thailand earlier this month, where Cambodia came eighth.

Cheum Seyha took the boys U14 singles title after coming back from a serious leg injury in a football accident that had him in a cast for over four months. Seyha, 12, beat Aspeca Orphanage teammate Sam David 6-0, 6-0 in the final.

In an all Aspeca affair, Sen Sokheng took the boys U12 by beating Ngong San 6-2, 6-1, while the girls division was won by Chhieu Apsara who downed Rouert Sreynu 6-3, 6-3 in the final

Hour Sreypov defeated Ho Sreynoch 6-1, 6-4 in the girls U18 final. The victory confirmed Sreypov as Cambodia’s entry to the WTA Future Stars Tournament in Singapore in October.
