Unprecedented final in the ATP 250 of Nur-Sultan, in Kazakhstan. Soon Woo Kwon and James Duckworth will face off in a duel they never reached in their professional careers.
The South Korean (the second of his nation to reach the last day of an ATP tournament) lowered local credit Alexander Bublik by 3-6, 7-5 and 6-3 and made the Kazakh celebration impossible with a level that was clearly from low to high. There was no shortage of Bublik luxuries that couldn’t make their mark on a Kwon concentrate.
While, the Australian took out Belarusian Ilya Ivashka 6-3, 7-6 (4) in a duel in which he clearly did not start as a favorite but knew how to define in the key moments.
Both players will seek their first professional title. It will also be the first time they meet on a tennis court and then anything can happen.
