HANOI (VNS) — Top Vietnamese tennis player Ly Hoang Nam will withdraw from the Men's Future Croatia F9, to be held from May 11 to 17, due to a procedural problem.
The tennis tournament, played on clay courts, was expected to help Nam prepare for the French Open 2015 at Roland Garros, Paris, which begins on May 31.
However, Nam will still leave for Europe to compete in the Italian Open from May 18 to 24, to win points for the world junior rankings.
After that, Nam and his coach Christian Brydniak will head to Sweden for a short training session, before moving to France.
Following his success in recent tournaments, 18-year-old Nam is ranked 14th on the world junior table, making him a seeded player at the junior French Grand Slam tournament. — VNS
