An Yu-jin (Goyang City Hall), who advanced to the finals after winning 3 wins in the preliminaries, recorded a total of 6 wins in a row and settled in the semi-finals.
An Yu-jin defeated Yamazaki Ikumi (Japan) 7-5 6-4 in the quarterfinals of the ITF Incheon Tennis Arena International Women’s Tour Tournament held on the 19th at Yeolwoomul Tennis Stadium in Incheon.
Yujin Ahn reached her first semifinal since her event in Jakarta, held in March this season, where she reached the quarterfinals.
“It feels really good because she celebrates so much around her,” said An Yu-jin, who made her first semi-final in the $25,000 Total Prize Ranking Competition (W25K).
Ahn Yu-jin said that she reached the semifinals four times in her career at the Yeongwol Championship, an ITF 15,000-dollar rated competition, and one finalist in the Gimcheon Championship, but she has no record of winning yet.
An Yu-jin, who has already played 6 games until the semifinals, said, “It’s a tough situation when I play because I play a lot, so the physical burden is great. Her feet have big blisters, so it hurts and worries me,” she said.
Yujin An will face Cody Wong Hong (Hong Kong) in the semifinals. Wong is 382nd in the world rankings, the highest ranking among players that An Yu-jin (958th in the world) has faced in this tournament.
An Yu-jin said, “I am physically in a difficult state, but I think that the ball will not be pushed by anyone. If I hit my ball with enough confidence, I think it is worth trying tomorrow. I will do my best in the match without any pressure because it is a high-ranking opponent.” .토토사이트
