PHL's Lim earns main draw slot at Hong Kong Futures tournament
By Jean T. Malanum

MANILA, Dec. 26 (PNA) -- Top Filipino junior Alberto “AJ” Lim Jr. survived the two-round qualifying of the Hong Kong F5 Futures tournament over the weekend to advance in the main draw.

Lim defeated wild card Chak Pong Marco of Hong Kong, 6-2, 6-2, in the first round and eliminated No. 2 Xi Qi of China, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (8) to join seven other qualifiers in the next round which begins on Monday.

“I am expecting to do damage in the second week and try to get my first ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) points,” said the 17-year-old Lim, who is playing in only his sixth tournament in the pro circuit.

Lim will be up against Jay Clarke of Great Britain, who reached the quarterfinals in the first leg last week.

Last week, Lim took an early exit when he lost to top seed Japanese Shuichi Sekiguchi, 4-6, 6-3, 3-6 in their first-round encounter at the Victoria Park Tennis Centre.

Meanwhile, Cing-Yang Meng, Wei-De Lin, Chung Han Tsai and Chun Hsin Tseng of Chinese Taipei; Ki Lung Ng of Hong Kong; Kazuma Kawachi of Japan; and Gary Kushnirovich of the United States also book their seats in the main draw.

The other seeded players in the main draw are No. 2 Takuto Niki, No. 3 Shintaro Imai, No. 4 Masato Shiga and No. 6 Jumpei Yamasaki of Japan, and No. 7 Geofrey Blancaneaux of France.(PNA)
