Jason Jung

Taiwan’s Jason Jung, one of ‘Chinese Taipei’s’ top ranked tennis players was knocked out at the semi-final stage of the New York Open over the weekend, but remains one of Taiwan’s most successful ever male tennis players.

Going down in straight sets 6-3, 6-2 to the  tournament’s eventual runner-up and world’s former number 18 on the ATP circuit, Italian Andreas Seppi, the US born Taiwanese still managed to pocket NT$ 1.12 million.

Jung, who became the best ranking male Taiwanese player in July 2018, after moving past a then injured Lu Yen-hsun and ranking number 114 in the world shortly afterwards, never really got into the game at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in Uniondale, New York.

Earlier in the tournament however, he had notched up impressive victories against the tournament No.3 Seed Reilly Opelka, and the 2018, champion Kevin Anderson.

Post match, the right hander took to the Internet, using Facebook to thank his fans for their support according to the Taipei Times newspaper.  Reportedly speaking in Taiwanese, Jung said “It didn’t go my way today, but super happy with the result and hopefully [I] can continue to carry this into the future,” before adding, “Thanks a lot for everyone [for] supporting me.” in English.

Jung, has long been an integral part of the Taiwanese tennis scene, and most notably won the gold medal at the 2017 Summer Universiade held in Taipei where he defeated South Korean Hong Seong-chan.

In the wake of his first ever appearance in the New York Open semis, his ATP ranking was 131.
