Kwon Soon-woo met Christopher Eubanks (30th, USA) in the first round of the US Open men’s singles held in New York on the 29th (Korean time) with a set score of 1-3 (3-6 4-6 6-0 4-6). lost.
Soon-Woo Kwon took a break instead of participating in the tournament due to a shoulder injury after advancing to the round of 16 of the Exxon Mobile Open in Qatar on the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour in February.
The US Open was the return match after about six months.
Although I was concerned about his sense of action, he was not helpless.
He showed his strength by winning the third set without allowing Eubanks a single game.
He also succeeded in scoring 13 serves 먹튀검증
which has been considered Kwon Soon-woo’s weakness.
It’s disappointing to be eliminated in the first round of the US Open, but there’s a long way to go for the rest of the season.
All Grand Slam tournaments this year have ended.
However, two more important competitions await Kwon Soon-woo.
First of all, Kwon Soon-woo will participate in the Davis Cup finals, a national competition, from the 12th to the 17th of next month.
Her national team will meet Serbia, Czech Republic and Spain in turn.
The national team, which has advanced to the finals for two consecutive years, is also the only Asian country among the countries that advanced to the Davis Cup finals this year.
In Serbia, Novak Djokovic (2nd place) is alive and well, and in Spain, Carlos Alcaras (1st place) is holding on.
There is a possibility that Djokovic and Alcaras will not participate depending on the results of the US Open, but both Serbia and Spain have an objective advantage over the national team.
In last year’s finals, the national team lost 0-3 to Spain. Above all, as the Davis Cup is played with 4 singles and 1 doubles, the role of ace Kwon Soon-woo is bound to be important.
In addition, Kwon Soon-woo will also participate in the Hangzhou Asian Games, which opens on the 23rd of the same month.
Two players from each country can participate in the men’s singles.
Kwon Soon-woo is expected to compete not only in singles but also in men’s doubles.
However, he cannot be optimistic about winning gold in the Asian Games.
This is especially true in recent competitions. At the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Games, Deok-Hee Lee won a bronze medal in men’s singles, and at the 2014 Incheon Games, the pair of Hyun Jeong and Yong-Gyu Lim won a gold medal in men’s doubles.
In men’s singles, there has been no gold medal since Yoon Yong-il at the 1998 Bangkok Games.
If Kwon Soon-woo, born in 1997, receives military service benefits for winning the Asian Games gold medal, he will have more freedom in his future tour life.
As such, Kwon Soon-woo has also set his sights on winning the Asian Games gold medal.
