Kwon Soon-woo won the second round of the Adelaide International (ATP 250) this season, becoming the first Korean player to win two ATP tour titles.
Zverev is one of the “Next Gen 3” along with Danil Medvedev (Russia) and Stephanos Tsitsipas (Greece) to succeed the Big 3, and has reached the top of the tour a total of 19 times, including two ATP Finals, and won the Grand Slam. He even finished runner-up at the 2020 US Open.
Zverev, who also won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, suffered an ankle injury in the semifinal match against Rafael Nadal (Spain) of last year’s French Open and was unable to digest the tour for about six months. Zverev’s condition has deteriorated recently due to injury, so he was eliminated in the second round of this year’s Australian Open and failed to prevent the German national team from losing at the Davis Cup.
However, Zverev’s class was still the same. Kwon Soon-woo played an equal match in the stroke match, but was unfortunately defeated by Zverev’s strong serve. Kwon Soon-woo attacked Zverev’s second serve well, and Zverev recorded a 30% second serve scoring rate that day, but had difficulty coping with Zverev’s sharp first serve.
In his first service game in the first set, Kwon Soon-woo got a break by allowing Zverev’s strong forehand return and forehand reverse cross winner. Afterwards, Kwon Soon-woo started to find his own pace and kept the service game, but in the return game, he was unable to get Zverev’s strong first serve. In Zverev’s serving for the set, Kwon Soon-woo started to be his first serve return and dragged it to deuce, but unfortunately gave up the first set.
Unlike the first set, Kwon Soon-woo kept the service game stable in the second set. In the return game, Kwon Soon-woo started receiving Zverev’s first serve well and had several chances, but a forehand error was regrettable. In the end, the 2nd set went into a tie-break, and Soon-woo Kwon allowed a mini-break once, resulting in the final defeat.
