(MHN Sports Bangi, Reporter Geum Yun-ho) It seems that the Belgian tennis team has taken Korea’s Kwon Soon-woo (Dangjin City Hall, 61st), who recently won the Australian Open, as their number one target.
The Belgian national team agreed on the “Caution Order for Kwon Soon-woo” at a pre-press conference held at the indoor tennis court in 메이저놀이터 Olympic Park on the 2nd ahead of the “2023 Davis Cup Final Qualification Match”.
Coach Johann van Herk, who announced that he has been leading the Belgian national team for 12 years, attended the press conference with a bright expression, saying, “As a tennis coach, it is always fun to participate in tournaments.”
Coach Herck, who always had a smile on his face, did not let down his guard, saying, “I know Kwon Soon-woo,” when asked about Korean national team ace Kwon Soon-woo.
Coach Herk said of the Korean national team, “We faced each other in the Thailand Open doubles. Regardless of the ranking, (Korea) is very threatening. We will play seriously in every game.”
“We will do our best and we will play with respect for our opponents,” he added.
Starting with David Gopin (41st), who rose to 7th in the world rankings in 2017, Belgium, who will participate in this tournament, will confirm the match schedule through a matchup draw on the 3rd (Fri), and then play on the 4th (Sat) and 4th. For two days on the 1st (Sunday), the ‘2023 Davis Cup’ final qualifying round (4 dan 1 doubles) will be held at the Olympic Park Indoor Tennis Stadium.
The winning team advances to the final round of 16, while the losing team advances to the World Group Qualifier 1.
