However, Lee Hyung-taek, who participated in the 2003 Sydney International, avenged his defeat by defeating Roddick in the round of 16, and then reached the final once again, defeating Wayne Pereira (South Africa) in the semi-final and lucky withdrawal from Marat Safin’s shoulder injury in the quarter-final. Afterwards, he defeated Juan Carlos Ferrero (Spain) to become the first Korean male player to win the ATP Tour.
After that, Cho Yoon-jung (42, retired) reached the finals three times on the WTA tour in 2002, 2003, and 2006, but ended up finishing runner-up in all of them, and Jeong Hyeon, the hero of the 2018 Australian Open semifinals, has not yet advanced to the finals on the tour, and only reached the semifinals three times.
Kwon Soon-woo became the youngest Korean tour winner (23 years and 9 months) at the 2021 Astana Open, and won again this time to become the first multi-winner in Korean tennis history.
