A tennis player from South Korea has now even been able to overshadow Chong Wang. At least for the moment. Kwon was never among the top 80, stood 81, now the Korean is located on 88 line in the world ranking. He is 22 years old. The young athlete continues to progress.
Last year, Kwon Soonwoo not only won titles in the challengers in Seoul and Yokohama, but also managed to break into the elite hundred tennis players. He made his way to the base on two consecutive majors. The best result in the competition from the ATP category was the quarter-finals in Los Cabos.
In the 2020 season, Kwon went to court 7 times, won 3 matches, 4 lost. In Canberra he made it to the quarter finals, then lost in two matches at the exhibition tournament, lost to Raonic and Cilic, in Melbourne in 5 games he was defeated by Nikoloz Basilashvili.
Kwon played in Pune in 2018, then in the 1st round of qualification he sensationally lost in three games to Brazilian Joao Souza. In the current tournament, the Asian missed 1 round. In the 2nd round, he played with the local tennis player Prajnesh Gunneswaran, won in two sets, won the 2nd game in a tie-break. He gave the only game on his pitch.
Kwon Soonwoo is still playing unstable, his success is associated with the challengers. A tennis player from South Korea does not have a class; by the level of the game, he has not yet pulled big tournaments, so he is trying to gain experience playing in the APR round in small competitions from the ATP-250 category. The young player considers open hard as his profile coating.
This year, Egor Gerasimov is celebrating a decade of his professional career in tennis, so it would be nice to celebrate the anniversary with some loud victory. But in the case of Egor, victory can hardly be high-profile. Well, at least just a victory. For example, at a tournament in Pune, you can make the first run. Only a little remains to the finals, but this step still needs to be done.
An athlete from Belarus ranks 90th in the world ranking. Most recently, he set this personal record. Next week, Egor will definitely surpass his best achievement. Gerasimov is an experienced tennis player. He won his first challenger title in the 2015 season. In 2016 and 2018, he had health problems. Last season, the 27-year-old tennis player won 44 victories, excelled in the Challenger in Recanati. The best result of the tournament from the Asia-Pacific category was reaching the semifinals in St. Petersburg.
Yegor began the new season with a defeat against Marton Fucovich in the qualification of the tournament in Doha. He beat Casper Ruud in 5 games in Melbourne, then in 2 out of 3 sets he got to continue in a duel with Sasha Zverev.
In Pune, Egor last season in the 1st round of qualification outplayed the Spaniard Jimeno-Travera, and in the dispute over the exit to the base he lost to the Indian Mineni. At the current tournament, the 90th rating number in the starting round did not leave a chance for the age-old Italian Paolo Lorenzi, in a dispute for getting into the quarter-finals Gerasimov achieved strong-willed success over Serb Milojevic. It is worth noting that in both matches he had problems at the start, was drawn into the game for a long time, but then he gradually added, made breaks and easily took games on his own serve.
Betting Tips Statistics
- Over the past five matches, Kwon has lost four times. Sunwa can be defeated for 1.85
- Over the past three victories, Gerasimov only once did not give a set to an opponent.
- Tennis players have not met before
Bookmakers estimate Kwon’s victory for a coefficient of 2.06, the final success of Gerasimov is estimated at 1.85. It is difficult to say who will win here and will be able to win a place in the 4 best of the tournament in Pune. If this is done by the Korean, then he will set a personal record. Both tennis players demonstrate a high percentage of sales on 1 serve and unstable play at the reception. In a duel of approximately equal rivals.
In this pair, not a Belarusian tennis player, but a player from South Korea is considered the favorite. This is obvious, because Kwon is younger and more promising. Moreover, in this tournament the South Korean played only one match. And not against anyone, but against Prajnesh Gunneswaran, whom he left with nothing. Therefore, not everything is as simple as it seems.
