Korean men’s tennis star Kwon Soon-woo (ranked 105th in the world, Dangjin City Hall), who is about to return after rehabilitation, is more likely to go directly to the finals of the major tournament US Open, his return stage after six months.

The United States Tennis Association (USTA) said on the 16th (Korean time), “Riley Opelka (USA), who was listed on the singles finals list, has conveyed his intention to withdraw.” Opelka has confirmed not to participate in the US Open for the second year in a row while he has not been able to return after the Washington tournament in August last year due to injuries to his hip and other parts.

Earlier on the 15th, Pablo Carreño Busta (Spain), who was supposed to participate in the singles finals, withdrew because he was judged not to be in normal physical condition, having only played four matches this year due to an elbow injury. He lost in the first round against Kwon Soon-woo at the 2nd tournament in Adelaide, Australia this year.

As the two players expressed their intention to not participate in the tournament, Kwon Soon-woo, who had been named in the third place on the preliminary list for the finals, was promoted to the first place.

Kwon Soon-woo, who started the year by winning the Adelaide International in January, struggled with a shoulder injury, and since the middle of last month, the pain has subsided and is preparing for the tournament normally. Kwon Soon-woo’s best US Open singles performance was advancing to the second round in 2020 and last year, and his best individual major singles performance was advancing to the third round of the 2021 French Open.

After the tournament, Kwon Soon-woo will move to Valencia, Spain, and compete in the group stage of the Davis Cup finals, a national competition. The group stage will be held from the 12th to the 17th of next month, and Korea competes against Spain, Serbia and the Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, the US Open, the third major tournament this year, will be held at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, USA from the 28th. In addition to Opelka and Carreño Busta, Nick Kirios (Australia), Jan Lennart Strupp (Germany), and Michael Imer (Sweden) have announced their intention to withdraw. 토토사이트
