In the first set, Jung Yoon-seong led the game with a strong serve and exciting forehand, leading the first set 6-3.

Eventually, Jason Chung took the second set and the match went back to square one.
With a game score of 4-4 in the 3rd set again, Jung Yoon-seong’s serve did not go well, and he could not keep his service game and took the lead 4-5.

In Jason Chung’s serve game, 5-4, 40-0, the ball returned by Jung Yun-seong’s backhand went off the line and the game ended.
Jung Yun-seong said, “It was raining today and it was humid because it was an indoor court, so the ball didn’t go well. He also rallied a lot, and although he attacked, he didn’t seem to be able to do much damage to his opponents. He received a lot of support from the crowd, but he is sorry that he couldn’t show a good game. However, it is regrettable that I did my best, but I think the good memories in Gwangju will remain for a long time.”
Nam Ji-seong, who entered the doubles semifinals, also matched with Arjun Cade (India), but lost to Australia’s Harris and Smith Joe 4-6 7-6 (5) [7-10] with two days left before the end of the Gwangju Open Challenger. All domestic players were eliminated.
