Vietnam’s top tennis star Ly Hoang Nam earned a slot in the men’s singles semifinals at the on-going Vietnam F5 Futures tournament in Tay Ninh province on November 2.

The Vietnamese player, who is the tournament’s No. 3 seed, continues to show his impressive form without losing a set in the singles event.

In the match this morning, underdog 19-year-old German Strombachs (No. 621 in the ATP rankings) played well in the first few games but could not hold his advantages in game 7. Nam took the opportunity to take the only break point in the first set and went on to win 6-4.

In the second set, 21-year-old Nam soon earned two break points to lead 3-0. Strombachs reclaimed a break point in the next game but that was not enough to stop Nam from advancing. After 29 minutes, the Tay Ninh native won 6-2 in the second set.

In the semi-final Nam will face Yu Cheng-Yu from Taiwan (China), who beat Ajeet Rai of New Zealand 6-4 6-2. This is a good opportunity for the Vietnamese tennis star to repeat his finalist position as at the F4 Futures tournament last week. Yu Cheng-Yu, alongside Hsu Yyu Hsiou (No. 2 seed), also competed against Nam and Roman Safiullin in the doubles semi-finals this afternoon. 

The couple from Taiwan won 6-1 in the first set, but Nam and Safiullin quickly fought back to earn a 6-3 victory in the second set, forcing the game into a super tie-break. The last game was tense but Nam and his Russian partner proved their quality to win 10-8, thus earning a ticket to the final against Francis Casey Alcantara - Markus Eriksson the following afternoon.
