Jo Jae-ho and Kang Dong-gung, two friends of the same age, who reunited two years ago on the professional stage and said that they would meet in the final someday.
[Cho Jae-ho (2021)]
“Meeting in the finals is always what I want, but I just want to make it to the finals.”
“I (win) once, you twice.”
[Jo Jae-ho (2021)]
“I wish I could do it at least once.”
The wish of a best friend of 22 years became a reality like a lie.
The two players met in the finals of the last tournament of the season.
There were no concessions before the match.
When Jo Jae-ho took the first set in 12 minutes with 8 consecutive goals, Kang Dong-gung also took the second set with 4 bank shots and counterattacked.
However, Jo Jae-ho’s back heart shone even more.
Even after giving 10 points in the 3rd set first, the game was overturned without being shaken, and the 4th set was also dragged 13-9, and then succeeded in scoring consecutively and won a come-from-behind victory.
And after a bloody fight in the 5th set, the score was tied 14-14.
Determined to end the game here, Jo Jae-ho finished the game with a bold one-bank shot.
It was the second win in his career following the season opener.
After a fierce battle, the two friends finally hugged each other, and Jo Jae-ho blushed.
“(Win) I did it at the end of the first, so I feel good at the beginning and I feel so good at the end… (wife) Yoo Soo-kyung! Thank you for coming and I love you!
