Ken in Australian Open Action
Ken and new partner Travis Parrot went down 7-6 6-3 to Arnauld Clement and Jeremy Chardy of France in the first round of the Australian open.
The anglo/american pairing squandered a 6-2 lead in the first set tie-break and also failed to convert any of the 6 break points they fashioned.
Ken said after the match that he was gutted with the result but very happy with how he is playing. His next tournament is the ATP South African Open.
Ken is starting the 2011 season at the tournament in Chennai, India. His partner for the week is the German, Philip Marx who is currently ranked no 68 in the world.
After Chennai, it’s off to Melbourne for the first grand slam of the year. Last year Ken reached the second round while playing with Colin Fleming. This year he is playing with the experienced American, Travis Parrot.
