TALLAHASSEE/STARNBERG, April 25, 2022
The 2022 Tallahassee Tennis Challenger singles champion has been crowned, with Tung-lin Wu of Chinese Taipei defeating US-American Michael Mmoh 6-3, 6-4 in Sunday’s title match.
In the first professional meeting between the two, Mmoh and Wu both took to the court in hopes of leaving Tallahassee the champion. In the first set, Wu was able to grab the first break and take and early 3-0 lead. The two were then able to stay on serve through the remainder of the set, but Wu had done the damage and closed out the opening set 6-3.
In the second set, the two traded early breaks but it was Wu who was able to grab another critical break to go up 2-1 on his serve. That is all the 23-year-old needed, closing out the match in his second match point with a final score of 6-3, 6-4 after one hour and 37 minutes.
