Posted Posted onAugust 8, 2023 Comments0

After being sidelined by injury, Kwon Soon-woo (25-Dangjin City Hall) has traveled to the United States for his first competitive match in six months.

South Korean men’s tennis ace Kwon Soon-woo has been ranked No. 5 on the qualifying list for the US Open, the third major of the season on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour, and has begun preparations locally.

Kwon, who has been sidelined since a shoulder injury in February, has dropped as low as 105th in the rankings. Only five players need to withdraw from the tournament due to injury. Last year, Kwon was ranked as high as 104th.

Kwon Soon-woo, who resumed court training in the middle of last month after her shoulder pain disappeared, plans to improve her condition in Florida before traveling to New York to compete in the US Open, which begins on Aug. 28 (local time). It would be her first return to the court in six months since the Exxon Mobile Open in Qatar in February.안전놀이터

If Kwon reaches the main draw of the tournament, it will be her fifth consecutive appearance since 2019.

Kwon’s best results at the US Open were in 2020 and last year, when she reached the second round. This year, she will be looking to reach the third round for the first time ever.
