Chung vs. Tanco: A match to see

Thursday, July 23, 2009

BEDMINSTER, N.J. – A must-see match is on the docket for the Round of 16.

Red-hot Victoria Tanco will take on 2008 U.S. Girls’ finalist Karen Chung.

Chung, a petite, Livingston, N.J., native, is a short hitter but an artist with a wedge and putter. She is the consummate fighter/grinder and won’t back down from Tanco.

Tanco continues to roll through this U.S. Girls’ Junior. A day after she won, 7 and 6, over Alina Ching, the Argentine cruised to a 5-and-4 win over Kendall Martindale. If she manages to win in the same convincing fashion over a tough competitor like Chung, the rest of the field will have to watch out.
