Andrea Ka from Cambodia is starting to play on the ITF circuit again in the last weeks. She was born in France but is playing for Cambodia now. In 2010 she went as high as no. 766 in singles and no. 805 in doubles and she won two 10k doubles titles in 2009/2010. She hasn't played in four years, but is now trying her luck again in some asian itf's.

Re: Cambodian Hope: Adrea Ka cheering thread

Andrea Ka regains world ranking after first round win

French-born Cambodian Andrea Ka defeated China’s Zhang Yukun 7-5-6-4 in the first round of the $10,000 ITF Women’s Futures at the Victoria Tennis Courts in Hong Kong yesterday to earn her first WTA ranking point after a four-year break she took away from the circuit to pursue her studies in the United States.

Ranked as high as 766 in July of 2010, Andrea, both of whose parents are Cambodians, left France where the family had settled to go to the United States and kept away from the circuit during her college days.

She first represented Cambodia at the 2011 SEA Games in Indonesia and was back as a member of the National team that took part in the Incheon Asian Games two months ago.

“I feel great that I am regaining my ranking” Andrea told the Post after her victory.

“It is a great day for Cambodian women’s tennis. We have had Tan Nysan and Bun Kenny with world rankings on the men’s circuit,” she said.

“For Andrea Ka to be in the WTA ranking list shows we are on the right track”, Tennis Cambodia secretary-general Tep Rithivit said.
