Kwon Soon-woo (84th, Dangjin City Hall) wrote a new history of Korean tennis.
Kwon Soon-woo defeated Roberto Bautista Agut (26th, Spain) in the final of the 2nd round of the ATP Tour Adelaide International held in Adelaide, Australia on the 14th (Korean time) after a close match, 2-1 (6-4 3-6 7-6< 4>) and lifted the championship trophy.
With this, he enjoyed the joy of winning a tour event in a year and four months after the Astana Open in September last year. Kwon Soon-woo is the first Korean player to win more than two championships on the ATP Tour. Lee Hyeong-taek (current coach of the Orion Tennis Team), who is called a legend of Korean men’s tennis, won the Adidas International in 2003. 먹튀검증
First of all, Kwon Soon-woo was lucky in this tournament. In the second round of the preliminaries, he was defeated by Tomas Machachi (Czech Republic, 115th place), and it seemed that advancing to the finals was frustrated, but among the finalists, a player who withdrew due to injury came out and stepped on the final stage as a ‘lucky loser’. He showed off his skills, of course. In the round of 16, he defeated Pablo Carreño Busta (15th, Spain) and in the semifinals, he defeated Jack Draper (42nd, England), who had lost in the first round. Even in the finals, he was hit by a veteran booster and didn’t get pushed back, laughing at the end.
In particular, Kwon Soon-woo’s serve, which was considered a weakness, has definitely become stronger. He also succeeded in 11 sub aces in the final, and his top speed reached 210 km. As the strong serve worked, his strong point doubled the power of his powerful forehand. The ATP Tour website also highly evaluated, saying, “Kwon Soon-woo controlled the rally with a formidable forehand at the crucial moment.”
Following his momentum, Kwon Soon-woo will go to the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, which will be held from the 16th. His best Australian Open performance was reaching the second round last year. His best ever Grand Slam event was advancing to the third round at the 2021 French Open.
Daejinwoon is also good. The opponent in the first round of the Australian Open is Christopher Eubanks (USA, 123rd), who came up as a wild card. Soon-Woo Kwon won against him once at the Doha Open last year. Kwon Soon-woo said, “I don’t think Dae Jin-woon is good. If he is a player who plays in the grand slam finals, there is no big difference in his performance. He can either lose or win. I am young. If I recover well, I will play well even in difficult matches.”
