THE KING of swing just made it back to back.

Barbados’ top-ranked tennis pro Darian King has completed yet another singles-doubles sweep, having won both open events over the weekend at the El Salvador Futures 2 event in La Libertad.

Playing hometown boy Marcelo Arevalo in Saturday’s final, the 23-year-old King swept aside the long-time Davis Cup rival 7-6, 6-4 to capture his sixth singles title for the year.

This was just one day after the Bajan ace paired with Emilio Gomez of Ecuador in a 6-3, 7-6(10) championship-winning doubles performance – his fifth of the season – against Arevalo and Ecuadorian Christopher Diaz-Figueroa. (JM)
