Tan Nysan KO’d in Khon Kaen Futures tourney

Thailand’s wild card pick Phassawit Burapharitta turned a mid-match crisis into a gutsy three-set victory over Cambodia’s Tan Nysan in the first round of the ITF Men’s Futures tennis tournament qualifiers in Khon Kaen, Thailand on Saturday. The two-time SEA Games bronze medallist, Tan Nysan, showed glimpses of his assailing form in the second set and early part of the decider, but that was not enough to contain the free-stroking Thai who polished off the tie at 6-3, 2-6, 7-5. The Cambodian right hander, who has had a few physical niggles after his first round exits from two back-to-back US$15,000 Futures in Phnom Penh last month, appeared to have recovered his poise and touch as he went down fighting. He is expected to stay on for another event at the same venue next week.
