Cambodia maintained its perfect start to its 2017 Davis Cup by BNP Paribas campaign after defeating Kyrgyzstan to top pool A at the Asia/Oceania Zone Group IV event in Bahrain
After cruising to an opening day victory over Myanmar, Cambodia found the going tougher on the second day of play in Isa Town, Bahrain – but its efforts were rewarded with a 2-1 victory over Kyrgyzstan and a place atop Pool A going into day three.
Phalkun Mam breezed past Farhad Urumbaev 62 61 to put Cambodia in front but Kyrgyzstan’s Evgeniy Babak defeated Sarith Our 75 62 to level for the 11th seeds. Kenny Bun and Mam then pinched the victory with a three-set win in the decisive doubles.
As a result, Cambodia has now recorded two wins in a Davis Cup Zone Group event for the first time in three years.
