Koreans surprised by loud crowd than fight put up by Indians

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Close to 3000 fans thronged the R K Khanna Tennis stadium to cheer the inexperienced Indian youngsters, who put up a gallant fight against the superior Koreans.

V M Ranjeet, who was outplayed on day one, played his heart out today but lost eventually.

Korean number one player Suk-Young Jeong, who defeated Ranjeet to seal the tie for his team, said he was not surprised by either Ranjeet's fight today or Malik's superb play on day one.

"I was not surprised, I played him (Malik) two years ago and it was 5-7 4-6 something like this. I have seen him, he's amazing. I was more surprised by the loud crowd. I have never played in atmosphere like this. I was getting angry a bit but concentrated on my game. I am happy with the result," Jeong said.

Korean captain Yong-II Yoon also said that he got a bit worried for his boys due to noise created by the crowd.

"There was a lot of noise. The boys are inexperienced to handle such crowd. But they did well, I am happy for them," Yoon said.

Surprisingly, Jeong was the only Korean complaining about the slow court.

"It was too slow, I had to mould. It's not my tennis that I played here," he said. MORE
