Darian King said he would give it 110 per cent.
So far Barbados’ top tennis player has more than lived up to his word.
The Lodge School product gave Barbados’ Davis Cup hopes a lifeline earlier today, when he came from a  set down to upset Chile’s no.2 player Christian Garin in their Americas Zone II clash at the National Tennis Centre, earning Barbados a 1-1 tie going into Saturday’s doubles encounter.
King lost the first set 6-2, but then raised the ante, winning the next three sets 7-6 (2), 7-5, 6-3.
Earlier in the day, Chile had earned a slight advantage when Gonzalo Lama beat Haydn Lewis 6-4, 6-1, 7-6. (BA)
