Kenny knocked out of Singha Bangkok Open

Cambodia’s Bun Kenny was knocked out of the Singha Bangkok Open by third seed Nuttanon Kadchapanan of Thailand in the first round at the Impact Tennis Academy yesterday.

The 1,213th ranked Kadchapanan dropped serve once in the first set but quickly recovered with a break back to take control of his rival, who managed to stave off several break points to hold until 5-4.

At 30-all Kenny double-faulted to give the Thai his first set point and Kadchapanan greeted it with a stunning forehand winner.

The more aggressive Kadchapanan took more risks in the second set and Kenny was not able to deal with the change of tactics.
