Cambodia sent five players to join this year’s event, the fourth year in a row that the kingdom has sent a team.
Chhieu Chaya from Phnom Penh, Rouert Sampun from Battambang and Soum Rootha from Siem Reap contest the boy’s category, while Nyem Srey Noch and Lou Reaksmey from Siem Reap take part in the girl’s draw.

In yesterday’s matches, Mohamed Namiq Shahid of the Maldives advanced to round two by defeating Sampun 4-2 4-1, with the girls expecting to make their debut today.
