Too easy for King


Share post:

SO MUCH for that clash of the tournament.
Overseas-based pro Darian King’s path to another title was made much easier after fellow Davis Cup player Seanon Williams defaulted their much-awaited quarter-final showdown in the FirstCaribbean Tennis Championships.
The match would have featured the two pro players in a head to head encounter for the first time in three seasons.
The quarter-final – originally scheduled for Monday at the Ocean View courts – was initially delayed by an hour following intermittent showers.
But the delay forced Williams to ask for the match to be rescheduled due to subsequent work commitments, and the 21-year-old former national champ then said he also wouldn’t be available to play the match on the following day.
King, 20, advances to the semi-finals and awaits the winner of today’s family affair between brothers Adam and Richard Hornsby.
Top-seeded national champ Russell Moseley, who completed a great 2012 season where he didn’t lose a single match, is set to play older brother and No.3 seed Ryan in tomorrow’s other semi-final encounter.
In the Boys’ 18 category, Ajani King reached the final after beating Andrew Symmonds 6-1, 6-2 yesterday and will now await the winner of the other semi-final between Adam Hornby and Matthew Estwick. (JM)
