At age 19 Darian King is now ranked 706. He was runner up at USA F23 two weeks ago beating a string of 4 solid current and former college players in Harbatsiuk,Beidas,Lacroix and Giron before falling to Steve Johnson in the final. King was a 5 start recruit out of Florida(must have dual citizenship) but elected to go pro and now represents Barbados on the ATP tour.

King beat Ze Zhang 7-5 6-3 to qualify for his first ever ATP main draw in Washington.

Does this make him the first player from Barbados to compete in an ATP level event?

Good luck in the main draw :hatoff:

I've got a feeling King is going to have a good result in Melbourne. It begins in a few hours from now against Ben Mitchell in Australian Open qualifying.
