Tennis tournament wraps up over weekend with finals

In a familiar match up, Kan Sophon and Orn Sambath will get down to fight the Junior U18 singles final of the 16th Tep Khunnah Memorial Tennis Tournament tomorrow following their easy semifinal victories at the National Training Centre yesterday.

Sambath wrapped up a woefully one-sided match against Our Sarith for the loss of just one game 6-0, 6-1, but Kan Sophon was even more emphatic beating Long Samneang 6-0, 6-0 in the other semifinal. 

A hectic schedule has been planned for the weekend with the finals of the U12 boys and girls singles along with Junior U14 singles also carded for tomorow.

While the elite men’s A singles semifinals are slated for tomorrow, the final is set for a 3pm start on Sunday followed by the distribution of trophies and a formal closing ceremony.
