DARIAN KING SAYS he has overcome the shoulder injury that dogged him before the US Open, and will be fit and sharp for this weekend’s top-of-the-table Americas Davis Cup Group 2 showdown with Venezuela at the National Tennis Centre in Wildey.
King, far and away the best tennis player in the country, has acknowledged that somehow he serves better in the Davis Cup than he does on tour.
“A lot of people didn’t know that prior to the US Open, I had problems with my shoulder. I wasn’t even sure at one stage if I would have played in the US Open – my shoulder was that bad. thanks must go to Jacqui King and Dr Thorne for assisting me.
“For Davis Cup, I serve very well, but on tour I don’t know what happens, I am not sure why. It is something that I really work on a lot in my off time, especially after practice that I would hit a basket of serves, hitting targets. I guess more repetition of that would improve my serve,” he said. (MK)
