Chen and Kim make it to the final of Cham Prasidh Open

Top-seed Ti Chen of Taipei and fifth-seed Kim Cheong-eui of South Korea moved into the final of the $10,000 ITF Futures, presented as the 6th Cham Prasidh Open, at the National Training Center yesterday. In the first semi-final, the 208th-ranked Chen took two and a half hours to subdue German Tom Schonenberg, ranked 722, in three pulsating sets at 4-6, 7-6, 6-3.

The second semi-final was a one-way street in favour of the Korean, who blasted out a 6-0, 6-1 win over Masato Shiga of Japan to make his first final appearance in this three-leg series.

The Korean slammed seven aces and reeled off seven games in a row in a 46-minute blowout. The Chen-Kim final will start at 10am on Court 1 today.
