King misses out


Share post:

DARIAN KING won’t be playing in the main draw of Wimbledon after all as the top-ranked Bajan tennis player missed out on being drawn as a lucky loser.

Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik got the spot this time and is slated to play defending Wimbledon champ and world no.1 Andy Murray in the first round.

King missed out on directly qualifying for the main draw after losing yesterday’s agonisingly tough final round qualifying match against former world no.26 Lukas Rosol 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

But the 25-year-old Bajan, ranked no.119, still had a chance to get in, as the lucky loser is randomly drawn from the four highest-ranked losers in the final round of qualifying. (JM)
