Today is the final day for Rendy playing in 2017 International Challenger Chengdu, a $125K challenger tournament in Chengdu, China. In the championship match today, top seed Rendy faced #2 seed Evgeny Donskoy from Russia. Donskoy is a talented and dangerous player. Just earlier this year, he beat Roger Federer in an ATP500 event in Dubai.
In the first set today, Rendy broke serve early at 2:1. With this service break, Rendy won the first set 6:3. In the second set, Rendy broke serve again at 2:2, and went on to win the second set at 6:4. This is Rendy's 28th Challenger title overall.
Rendy would like to thank Team Lu for the support during the past two months when Rendy was out of action due to elbow injury, especially big thanks to physio Stefan and trainer Addway for the physical therapy and rehabs. To be able to come back healthy enough this week and win this tournament means a lot to Rendy. And, thanks to all of Rendy's fans for the support and encouragement. Rendy will next head to Jinan, China for the $150K Jinan Challenger.
