THE Super Singles tournament, part of the weeklong Tep Khunnah Memorial Cup tennis tournament at the Cambodian Country Club, begins its first round of group matches today from 5pm. Three Cambodians, three Vietnamese, an American and a Thai will vie for a place in Saturday’s final. Chea Poev, national team assistant coach, said he has high hopes for his players to make the final round. “[The Cambodians] have trained regularly and will play with determination because it will be the biggest test for them before the SEA Games,” he said by phone Tuesday. “However, it won’t be easy for them to play against good players, especially the ones from Vietnam who will also be participating at the SEA Games. I’ve noted that the Vietnamese players have worked very hard because they really want to get a positive result in this tournament.”
