King for Fuzion 100 quarter-finals
Darian King is on to the quarters of another major tournament.
The king of swing has his sights on the final four of the Fuzion 100 Ilkley Trophy after advancing to today’s quarter-finals of the ATP Challenger tournament in the United Kingdom.
Preparing for next week’s qualifying rounds of Wimbledon, King downed Sebastian Ofner 7-6, 6-4 in the round of 16 after also taking out Jack Draper 6-4, 6-2 in straight sets.
The 26-year-old world No. 169 is slated to face German Oscar Otte this morning at 5 a.m., Barbados time.
King barely missed out on making the main draw of Wimbledon last year after losing an agonisingly tough 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 result to former world No.26 Lukas Rosol in the final round of qualifying. (JM)
