HE WAS DEFEATED but Darian King certainly wasn’t disgraced.
This time the King had to settle for second best after his Davis Cup squad came up just short in their opening Group I tie against the Dominican Republic.
It wasn’t without effort, though, as the fast-rising 22-year-old swept aside Jose Hernandez, then paired with Haydn Lewis in a similarly dominating doubles performance, before ultimately losing to world No. 56 Victor Estrella.
King still gave a great account of himself, however, ripping backhands like these while going toe-to-toe with Estrella over the first two sets. (Picture by Kenmore Bynoe.)
