At the Jangho Hong Jong-moon Cup Junior Tennis Tournament, the final battleground for Korean tennis hopefuls, Noh Ho-young (17, Osan GS) and Kim Yu-jin (18, Ansan TA) won their second consecutive victory in the men’s and women’s singles.

Noh Ho-young defeated Lee Woong-bi (18, Seoincheon High School) 2-0 (6-3, 6-0) in the 67th Jang Ho-bae men’s singles final held at the indoor tennis court at Myongji University in Yongin on the 15th.토토사이트

Noh Ho-young, who defeated Jeong Yeon-soo (16, J1TA) 2-0 in the finals last year, became the 8th man in Jang Ho-bae’s history to win two consecutive wins in men’s singles. Noh Ho-young is a promising player who was selected as the second scholarship recipient of the ‘Jangho Next Generation’ scholarship program sponsored by the Jangho Tennis Foundation last year.

The foundation provides Next Generation scholarship students with annual expenses worth 50 million won to participate in overseas competitions. In this competition, Kim Jang-jun (17, Thinkron TA), the first Jangho Next Generation scholarship student, participated as the 1st seed and Noh Ho-young as the 2nd seed, attracting attention. However, Kim Jang-jun lost to Jeong Yeon-soo 0-2 (4-6, 4-6) in the first round of the tournament, and the ‘Scholarship Derby’ was postponed to another opportunity.

In the women’s singles final held on the same day, Kim Yu-jin defeated Choi On-yu (17) of the same team 2-0 (6-2, 7-6), completing her second consecutive title. She gained major junior tournament experience by participating in the Australian Open and French Open junior tournament qualifiers this year. Kim Yu-jin graduated from the junior stage this year and begins her adult tour challenge next year.

Jang Ho-Bae was founded in 1957 with the purpose of discovering and nurturing excellent junior tennis players at an early age. The Jangho Cup, which celebrates its 67th anniversary this year, is the only junior competition held as an invitational competition in Korea.

After completing the 67th Jangho Cup Tournament, the men’s and women’s winners and runners-up, the winners’ families, and Jangho Tennis Foundation honorary chairman Hong Soon-mo (third from the left, second row from the front) and other foundation officials are taking a commemorative photo together. The Jangho Tennis Foundation was established in 2000 by the bereaved family of former Korean Tennis Association Chairman Hong Jong-moon after his death in 1999 to support his legacy.

Currently, Korean men’s tennis ‘signature’ Kwon Soon-woo (26, Dangjin City Hall) won the 59th Jangho Cup in 2015, and the winner of the 58th tournament in 2014 a year ago was Jeong Hyeon (27), the protagonist of the Australian Open semifinals myth. Including these players, almost all of the players who wrote Korean tennis history, such as Lee Deok-hee (30th champion), Lee Hyeong-taek (37th runner-up), and Jeon Mi-ra (37th and 38th champions), participated in this tournament.
