Korean Tennis Loses to Canada, Failing to Make it to the Round of 16 in the Davis Cup

The Korean men’s tennis team failed to advance to the round of 16 at the Davis Cup.

The Korean men’s tennis team lost the final score of 1-3 against Canada in the final round of the 2024 Davis Cup (four singles and one doubles) held in Montreal, Canada, from the 3rd to the 4th (Korea time). Korea, which reached the final round of the Davis Cup finals in 2022 and 2023, failed to advance to the finals of the Davis Cup for the third consecutive year due to its defeat.꽁머니

Korea got off to a shaky start on the first day of the tournament, with Kwon Soon-woo (700th) and Hong Seong-chan (224th, Sejong City Hall) losing in succession in the first and second singles. However, Nam Ji-sung (140th in doubles, Sejong City Hall) and Song Min-gyu (399th in doubles, KDB Development Bank) defeated Canada’s Alexis Gallano (553rd in doubles) and Phosphisil (576th in doubles) 2-1 (6-4 6-7<4-7> 6-3) in their first and second singles matches in Seoul last year. Korea had a come-from-behind victory of 3-2 by defeating Belgium in the first and second singles matches in the final round match held in Seoul last year.

However, Korea wrapped up all of its schedules in the fourth round of this year’s event. Hong lost to Gabriel Diallo (132nd) 1-2 (5-76-4 1-6), failing to continue his race to the fourth round, where Kwon Soon-woo was waiting.

South Korea, which has advanced to the Davis Cup finals five times (in 1981, 1987, 2007, 2022, 2023), has been pushed back to the “World Group 1” scheduled for September this year. If they win the match, they can try to advance to the final round again in February next year, but if they lose, they will fall to the “World Group 1 Playoffs.”
