Playing to his potential, Tep Timothy, a member of the junior programme run by national coach Braen Aneiros, won the Tennis Federation of Cambodia’s U12 boys singles event at the National Training Centre on Sunday.

In an evenly contested final, the son of TFC Secretary General Tep Rithivit got the measure of Leng Sambath, winning the one-set encounter 6-3.

On the way to the final, Tep Timothy beat Sothy Vichaknin 6-2 while Leng Sambath defeated Bunny Nikoula by the same scoreline.

In the girls division, Tea Heng Mey emerged as the winner after beating Kim Dara 6-3 in the final. In the semifinals, Tea Heng Mey was too good for Tea Heng Chhe 6-0 while Kim Dara dropped just one game to Lisa.

As many as 18 boys and girls, twelve of them from the Schools Tennis Initiative, took part in the Kingdom’s first tournament of its kind. Low pressured green patch balls, were used for all the matches which were decided on one advantage set.
