Cambodia’s No 1 tennis player Bun Kenny was rushed to an intensive care unit in a provincial hospital near Bangkok after he developed body cramps following his 7-6, 6-1 loss to India’s Kasa Sharma in the second round of the Asian Circuit men’s futures qualifiers Sunday.
According to national coach Braen Aneiros, Bun Kenny was given treatment and stayed in the hospital for four hours before being discharged. “He was feeling a bit weak but he is okay now,” said the coach.
The two returned to Phnom Penh Monday night. “Bun Kenny will undergo extensive tests here to determine what went wrong,” added Aneiros.
In their Futures match Sunday, Cambodia’s Asian Games hopeful had his chances to break his Indian opponent during a closely contested first set. But the Indian, who had beaten Bun Kenny at the same stage in Malaysia last month, dominated the tie break and quickly followed with a second set wrap up for the loss of just one game. In the first round, Bun Kenny had outplayed China’s Jia Lee 6-4, 6-1.
