Tennis Star King Visits the King's Castle

February 16, 2017

Tennis star Darian King stopped by the home of the King of Rock 'n' Roll this week.

King, who has made Barbados tennis history at this week's Memphis Open, toured Graceland on Wednesday. He said he enjoyed touring Elvis' mansion, as well as his two custom jets.

“He’s down in the books as a great one. I’m really happy to actually be here, around his surroundings, around his homeland," King said.

The Barbados native has had a successful week at the Memphis Open. On Tuesday, he upset fifth seed Bernard Tomic 6-4, 6-4 to become the first player from Barbados to win an ATP World Tour match. King, who had to qualify for the Memphis Open, had lost his only other ATP World Tour main draw contest at the 2015 Citi Open.

“As you know I’m trying to be like a king,” he said in between laughs. “That’s obviously what I’m trying to aim for, to be one of the best… Hopefully it can happen.”
