King of the court


Share post:

Barbados’ best is King in more than just name.
Whatever doubts there were over Darian King’s elite status were just dismissed like each of his opponents following a week-long tour de force that left the tongues of local tennis fans wagging.
Brandishing a bigger first serve and an equally impressive forehand, the 20-year-old standout showed the time spent on the pro circuit was put to good use after showcasing vast improvements in all facets of his game.
Even the best of the rest just weren’t on his level, or anywhere near, as King (here executing a forehand return) wiped the court with all of the top local players on his way to two titles in the span of a week. (JM)
