THE KING has taken court once more. Barbados are up 1-0 in their pivotal Davis Cup Americas Group II tie against El Salvador following Darian King's latest straight-sets victory at the National Tennis Centre. Playing in front a modest crowd in the opening singles match, the local No. 1 had yet another dominant performance of the ages, routing Rafael Arevalo 6-1, 6-3, 6-3. It was a reverse of fortune for King, who lost the first singles encounter against the same opponent in last year's first round tie. Bajan No. 2 Haydn Lewis is set to take on Arevalo's younger brother Marcelo in the day's other singles match. (JM)
