Bajans fall short again

BARBADOS have lost to Ecuador again. This time even worse.

The ultramarine and gold’s quest for revenge fell dreadfully short after Darian King and Haydn Lewis lost yesterday’s hard-fought doubles encounter to give the hosts an unassailable 3-0 lead in the Davis Cup Group I Americas tie at the Portoviejo Tennis Club.

Playing against Emilio Gomez and Giovanni Lapentti, Barbados’ dynamic duo clawed back from an early one-set deficit only to lose 6-4, 6-7(7), 6-2, 6-3 following nearly three-and-a-half hours of gruelling play.

It’s the second time in as many years that the Bajans lost to their South American counterparts, having suffered a heart-breaking 3-2 defeat at home last season.
