Sinus infection holds up King
THE TOP HUNDRED will have to wait.
Darian King’s quest to crack the world’s top 100 is on hold for now as Barbados’ top-ranked tennis pro looks to rebound from a serious sinus infection before making a run at the French Open.
King’s coach and older brother Christopher explained the plan after the world No. 108 suffered three successive first-round defeats at the Challenger level while battling the illness.
“It’s just bad timing, really, because after Davis Cup he took the week off and was starting to feel sick but we thought it was the common cold, so he still went away to Sarasota [in Florida] chasing points to break into the top 100 but Jurgen Melzer isn’t the kind of person you want to play when you’re not feeling 100 per cent,” said Christopher.
