AN early exit from the men’s singles did not deter Mak Brandon from making steady headway in the Junior U14 singles event at the Cham Prasidh Tennis Cup, played at the National Training Centre. After breezing through the first set yesterday, Mak Brandon had to work hard in the second before wrapping up a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Touch Sophearoth. The tournament’s top seed Bun Kenny and the in-from Long Samneang joined forces to pull off a 6-2, 7-6 victory over Yi Keavirak and Chhay Panhavuti in the men’s doubles, while another strong pair Ek Chamroeun and Orn Sambath got the better of Sok Samath and Kan Sophon 6-0, 6-4.
