Hoang Nam’s opponent in the round for the four strongest men’s singles players is Kenny Bun (ranked 1457 in the world). This is considered the “dark horse” of this year’s ITF Men WTT M25 Tay Ninh tennis tournament, when it unexpectedly surpassed both the 4th seed – Rubin Statham and the 7th seed – Tommaso Compagnucci in the previous rounds.
In fact, Kenny Bun also caused many difficulties for the number 1 player in Vietnam in the last semi-final. Specifically, in the first game, despite being led to 5-1, the Cambodian player still played with determination to shorten the gap to 4-5.
However, the bravery of Ly Hoang Nam was shown. Taking advantage of the serve, the home team player ended this match with a score of 6-4.
Taking the psychological advantage, the number 1 seed of the tournament started game 2 smoothly. Hoang Nam soon broke Kenny Bun’s first serve game to take the lead. Despite the commendable efforts of the Cambodian player for the rest of the time, the level of the number 1 player in Vietnam was still promoted with an absolute 6-0 victory.
Defeat Kenny Bun in 2 games, Ly Hoang Nam excellently entered the men’s singles final of the M25 Tay Ninh tennis tournament in 2022. This victory also helps the Tay Ninh tennis player to definitely add 16 ATP points. Thereby, Hoang Nam will continue to improve its position on the world rankings after this tournament.
As planned, the men’s singles final match of the M25 Tay Ninh tournament will be held at 10:00 am on October 2.
