FORGET HIS DISAPPOINTING third-round exit at the Pan American Games, Barbados’ top tennis player is once again eyeing a place in the main draw of the US Open.
But it will be no walk in the park.
Darian King will have no choice but to play a very high standard of tennis, if he is to repeat his 2017 historic Grand Slam appearance.
The Bajan “king of swing” has a date today at 12:15 p.m. local time, in the first qualifying round at the USTA Bille Jean King Tennis Centre in Flushing Meadows, New York City, with Tunisian Malek Jaziri who is ranked 103 compared to King at 179.
However, ahead of a highly anticipated match, considering the two have never met, the Bajan ace is in high spirits.
“Happy to be competing in another US Open. This is my goal each year, as many may know why by now. I am thankful to be playing here and representing Barbados and the Caribbean region,” King said in a post on social media following a training session.(AGB)
