‘Second win against TOP20 opponent’ Kwon Soon-woo “Before the Australian Open, my condition has improved, so it’s good”

Kwon Soon-woo (Dangjin City Hall), the “Korean tennis player,” advanced to the quarterfinals of the first tour of the new year by catching world number 15 Pablo Carreño Busta (Spain) in the round of 16 match at the Adelaide International on the 11th.

This was the second victory against the TOP 20 after Felix Ozer-Aliasim (then ranked 13th in the world) in the Davis Cup Finals match against Canada last year. 

In a local interview after the game, Kwon Soon-woo expressed his feelings, “For the second time, I won against a player in the top 20. It was a tough game, but through today’s game, my condition before the Australian Open gradually improved, and it is good.”  메이저놀이터

Next, Kwon Soon-woo explained about his current performance, “I advanced to the finals as a lucky loser and in the first round, I was lucky to win against a player who had lost in the preliminaries. I think the driving force of my current performance is that I participated in the game without any burden.” 

Carreño Busta, who reached the top of the Canadian Masters, last year’s ATP Masters 1000 series, won a bronze medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics by defeating Novak Djokovic (Serbia). 

Regarding the factors that helped him beat Carreño Busta, Kwon Soon-woo said, “I tried to run more than my opponent and put more pressure on the return, which seems to have worked.” 

Soon-woo Kwon will face Mikael Emmer (Sweden) in the quarterfinals. Soon-Woo Kwon met Emer in the round of 16 match of the 1st tournament in Adelaide last year and lost 3-6 2-6. The match between Kwon Soon-woo and Emer will be broadcast live on tvN SPORTS.
