London, June 28 (CNA) Taiwan’s top-ranked male tennis player, Lu Yen-hsun (盧彥勳), moved forward into the second round of the men’s singles at Wimbledon on Tuesday with a 6-4, 6-1, 6-4 win over Alexander Kudryavtsev of Russia.
Lu, who is currently No. 76 in the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) rankings, will take on the winner of the all-British match between Andy Murray and Liam Broady in the second round of the third Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year.
This is Lu’s 13th consecutive appearance at Wimbledon since 2004, when the Taiwanese tennis veteran competed for the first time in the championship.
Since returning to the tour last month after recovering from elbow surgery, Lu has won two ATP Challenger Tour titles — the Aegon Ilkley Open Trophy 2016 and the Surbiton Challenger — both on grass and both in the United Kingdom, on June 12 and June 19, respectively. [FULL STORY]
