Tennis powerhouses gather in Gimcheon… Hana Securities Korean Championship opens on the 27th



Jeong Yun-seong and Kim Da-bin attempt to win three consecutive men's and women's singles titles

The 78th Hana Securities Korea Tennis Championships, which boasts the highest tradition and authority among domestic tennis competitions, will be held at the Gimcheon Sports Town Tennis Stadium in Gyeongbuk for ten days from the 27th to the 5th of next month.

The total prize money for the competition is 100 million won.  온라인카지노

The singles winner will receive a prize of 10 million won, and the runner-up will receive a prize of 6 million won.

The prize money for winning the doubles is 5 million won.

The singles winner receives 400 KTA ranking points, the most in the country.

The point to watch in this year's tournament is whether the defending men's and women's singles champions, Yun-seong Jeong (Uijeongbu City Hall) and Da-bin Kim (Gangwon Provincial Office), achieve their third consecutive victory in the tournament.

Jeong Yun-seong is attempting to win his third consecutive men's singles title in 45 years since Joo Chang-nam in 1978.

Jeong Yun-seong, who won the doubles title at this year's Men's Professional Tennis (ATP) Challenger Tournament, continued his growth by participating in the Davis Cup finals and the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games as a member of the national team.

Jeong Yun-seong expressed his determination, saying, “Winning is my goal.

I will show a performance that matches that.”

Lee Jae-moon (KDB Saneom Bank), the runner-up in last year's competition and a native of Gimcheon, is considered to be Jeong Yun-seong's opponent.

Lee Jae-moon has yet to win a singles title in this tournament.

In women's singles, Kim Da-bin is aiming for her third consecutive victory in 34 years since Park Mal-sim in 1989.

However, the calf injury suffered at the National Sports Festival, which closed this month, is a variable.

Kim Da-bin said, “I'm a little worried because I'm not 100% in shape yet.

My calf muscle is a little torn. Rather than thinking about losing three games in a row, I'll focus every day and show good play.”

Da-yeon Baek (NH Nonghyup Bank), who is on a rapid rise, won the Hart Award, equivalent to the MVP award, at the Billie Jean King Cup, her first national competition, and won the bronze medal in women's doubles at the Hangzhou Asian Games. Baek Da-yeon (NH Nonghyup Bank) also won the women's singles.

He is considered a candidate.

Baek Da-yeon caused a stir by defeating Yelena Ostapenko (Latvia) in the first round of the singles finals of the Women's Professional Tennis (WTA) Tour Korai Open, which was held following the Asian Games.

The competition is hosted by the Korea Tennis Association and Gimcheon City, hosted by the Korea Tennis Association, Gyeongsangbuk-do Tennis Association, and Gimcheon City Tennis Association, and sponsored by the Gimcheon City Sports Council.

You can watch all matches on site for free.

In addition, it will be broadcast live online for 6 days from the 31st to the last day of the competition through YouTube's ‘Great Tennis Association TV‘ and Naver Sports.
