Dayeon Back and Na-Lae Han will face each other in the round of 32 of the 2022 WTA Korea Open on September 19.
Han Na-Lae will soon begin her 12th Korean Open performance, which will be her eighth in the tournament’s main draw. The 30-year-old has won both of her WTA main draw matches on the basis of being a regular recipient of a wildcard at her home tournament, where she has competed since 2009. She once upset third-seeded Kristyna Pliskova in 2017 and defeated her countrywoman Jean Su-jeong in 2014. However, she has spent the vast bulk of her career competing on the ITF circuit. She advanced into about six semifinal-caliber finishes in 2022 and is getting close to a comeback inside the top 200.
Back Dayeon recently won her first professional title at a W15 competition in Yeongwol, her home country. This weekend, she had a flawless WTA debut in Seoul, defeating Daniela Vismane and Lina Glushko, two players ranked in the top 300, to secure a spot in the main event. The 20-year-old finished her junior career with a best finish of a J1 final in Cancun, Mexico, and a top ranking of 31 two and a half years ago. Since becoming a professional, she has maintained a flexible schedule, playing exclusively in Egypt, Tunisia, and Korea.
Dayeon Back and Na-Lae Han are scheduled to face each other in the round of 32 of the 2022 WTA Korea Open on Friday, September 19. The tournament is scheduled to begin on September 19 and end on September 25.
The 2022 WTA Korea Open is scheduled to commence on September 19 and go on until September 25 this year. The tournament will have five rounds of play excluding the qualifiers. These are the round of 32, round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals.
