Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov dedicated the victory of the tournament in Zhuhai, China, to his family, and also cited the main difficulty of the final match against the Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka.
On Tuesday, Khachanov became the winner of the ATP 250 category tournament, defeating Nishioka in the final with a score of 7:6 (7:2), 6:1. This is the 27-year-old Russian’s first personal title since 2018, when he won three ATP tournaments – in Paris, Moscow and Marseille.
— I didn’t know that Yoshito’s birthday was tomorrow, otherwise I might have played differently (smiles). When I play against Nishioka, I have to run a lot. Left, right, left, right. Like table tennis.
I’m coming back from an injury. Coming here, I was hoping to practice the game. I really wanted to come back and win the title after a few years, especially here in China. It’s really good. “I dedicate the victory to my family,” Khachanov said according to Tennis.com.
Khachanov ranks 15th in the world rankings.
