King moves forward

Barbados Today:

 

Barbadian Darian King reached the final qualifying round of the Australian Open earlier this morning, and is now one win away from securing a spot among the big boys.

Playing once again on court 12 , King eased to a 7-5, 6-0 victory over Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik, who is ranked 115th in the world.

With this result, Sweden’s 21-year-old Elias Ymer is the only person standing in the way of King’s entry into the grand slam tournament.
