King moves forward

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.

    This boy needs a proper haircut. He needs to know that he is a Barbados Ambasidor too. He is too young to be like Gabby.

      This is probably the most idiotic comment that I have seen all year. you sat here and sought to undermine Darian achievements over a haircut.
      This young man is making significant strides in tennis and before congratulatory sentiments are offered the first thing you have done is try to bring him down by talking about his haircut.

      Don’t even get me started on your spelling.

      1 more to go, King! Stay Focused!

      First let me congratulate Darian on his achievement you keep making Barbados proud.
      To Mack, who are you to be making such a stupid comment. What have you done for Barbados lately.
