Defeat for Darian King
Barbadian tennis ace Darian King tasted defeat in his first outing at the 2016 Rio Olympics today.
King who reached the Games via a wildcard entry, was beaten in straight sets by American Steve Johnson 6-3, 6-2.
The 24-year-old had gone into the game hoping to avenge a previous defeat at the hands of the 26-year-old Johnson.
In the final of the 2011 16th Annual Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Centre USTA Pro Classic, Johnson had also defeated King 6-2, 6-3.
