South Korea’s last hope, tennis player Jang Jang-jung, suffered a heartbreaking defeat at the French Open.

Jang Jang-jeong lost 0-2 (4-6, 3-6) to Reka Yani in the first round of the 2023 French Open qualifying tournament at Roland Garros in Paris, France, at 6:20 p.m. on March 23.

Given their recent rankings (Jang is 116th, Yani 154th) and opponents (Alize Cornet-Laura Salden), Jang was favored to win, but the clay court was a factor.

Yani’s lack of unforced errors in her attack, compared to Chang’s struggles in the lineout, proved to be the difference in the match. In the first set, Jang Jang-jeong fought back from three games down to get to 4-5, but unfortunately dropped the next game to lose the set.토토사이트

In the second set, despite struggling with Yani’s short-long strategy, Jang managed to tie the game at 3-3, but Yani’s backhand and forehand returns, which alternated between the front and back of the court and the left and right sides of the court, caused her to drop three games in a row to end the challenge.

Thus ended the ‘Battle of France’ for the Taegeuk Warriors. Novak Djokovic-Andy Murray on the men’s side and No. 1-ranked Iga Sibyontek and No. 4-ranked Elena Rybakina (winner of the Italian Open) on the women’s side will compete in the main draw starting on May 31.
