Third Challenger title for Darian

DARIAN KING has done it again.

The top-ranked Bajan pro captured his third ATP Challenger event for the year after downing American teenaged qualifier Michael Mmoh today in the final of the Wells Fargo Tiburon Tennis Challenger in California.

Playing on centre court, the 24-year-old world no.165 defeated Mmoh 7-6(2), 6-2  in an hour and 39 minutes.

Mmoh, 18, actually served for the first set at 5-4, but lost his composure and his serve before going down in the tiebreak.

The title follows championship wins in Colombia and New York during successive weeks in July. (JM)
