Teenager Delton falls to Parikshit in straight sets

India’s Somani Parikshit defeated Delton Kim 6-2, 6-4 in the second round of the ITF Junior Grade 4 event in Thailand yesterday, depriving the Cambodian teenager of a chance to earn his first world junior ranking point.

Delton, however, will stay on in Bangkok to pursue this aim next week when he competes in a similar event.

The steadier of the two won the battle as Delton showed a keen sense of purpose in the second set but was unable get a foothold on the match.

Meanwhile, Cambodia’s Davis Cupper Phalkun Mam left Phnom Penh yesterday to assist in coaching Delton and teammate Chheang Vannasak for the qualifiers over the weekend.
