Winning Wuyibing is just the beginning… ATP Tour China power rises
A five-star red flag (Chinese flag) appeared on the men’s professional tennis (ATP) singles ranking site. The world tennis world is accepting it as a great leap forward for a Chinese male player who has had no presence in the past.
The flag bearer of ‘China Power’ is Wu Yibing (23).
In the final of the ATP Tour Dallas Open, which ended on the 13th (Korean time), Wu Yi-bing beat strong server John Isner (37th, USA) with a set score of 2-1 (6-7<4-7> 7-6<7-3>). 7-6 <14-12>) and lifted the championship cup. Wu Yibing is the first Chinese player to win the men’s singles championship on the ATP Tour, where the strongest players in tennis have gathered.
Uibing, who advanced to the semifinals by beating Dennis Shapovalov (27th, Canada) and Adrian Mannarino (59th, France) in turn, advanced to the final by defeating Taylor Fritz (7th, USA) 2-1. Wu Yibing was the first Chinese male player to beat a player within the top 10 of the rankings.
Wuyi Bing showed off his presence by conquering the 2017 US Open Junior Singles in his junior year. He turned pro in the same year, but hadn’t posted a record of 6 wins and 10 losses on the ATP Tour until this tournament. 스포츠토토
It wasn’t until last year that Wu Yi-bing made a full-fledged performance on the tour. Wu Yi-bing, who advanced to the third round of the US Open, a major tournament, even finished runner-up at the Seoul Open, albeit at the challenger level.
Wu Yibing’s ranking, which hovered around the top 100, succeeded in entering the top 100 (97th) for the first time last week. And with this victory, he rose to 58th, his personal best. It is higher than domestic top Kwon Soon-woo (26), who is ranked 63rd.
Chinese tennis has always been a monopoly for female players. While Chinese female players commanded the world stage, led by Lina (40), who rose to second place in the women’s professional tennis (WTA) singles rankings by winning the major tournaments, the Australian Open and the French Open, the male players’ skills were quite far from the top level. there was
It is expected that China’s power in men’s tennis will not stop at Wuyi Bing. This is because the skills of Zhang Jijian (26), who is in 92nd place along with Wu Yibing, and Sang Juncheon (165th place), who is only 18 years old, are rapidly rising. She defeated Germany’s Oscar Ote (80th) in the first round of the major Australian Open, which was held in January this year, and advanced to the second round.
These are the players who will compete with Kwon Soon-woo for the gold medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games to be held this September.
