Tennis – Fresh Korean Word of the Day for Wednesday June 13th

Tennis – 테니스 (Tae / Ne / Ser)

Tennis (테니스) maybe a global favorite however it has never really taken off in Korea. Part of the reason behind that is the lack of successful professional players, currently Korea only has a handful of players playing professionally. The main examples are Lee Jin-a and Kim So-jung, however they are both ranked outside the world top 200.

There is a WTA (Women’s Tennis) tourament held yearly (normally September) at the Olympic Park in Seoul, the 2011 winner was Spanish player Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez.

Thank you for stopping by today and we hope to see you tomorrow for sport number 4.
