Kenny makes exit in Bangkok Futures event

Cambodia’s No 2 tennis player Bun Kenny went down fighting against Australia’s Yuri Bezekou 7-6, 6-3 in the second round of the Men’s Asian Circuit futures event qualifiers in Bangkok Sunday. In a first set marked by long rallies and hard-earned points, Kenny had the Australian in spots of bother before losing out in a tight tie-break. Kenny held his own in the second, but the Australian assumed absolute control midway through the set to polish off the match. Earlier in the first round, Bun Kenny overcame stiff resistance from another Australian, Andrew Thomas, winning an absorbing baseline contest 7-6, 7-5.
