That is Chinese Taipei’s Yen-Hsun Lu. On Wednesday, the man they affectionately call ‘Rendy’ had his moment in the spotlight.

With his second round victory over Jarmere Jenkins at the Lecoq Seoul Open, Lu made ATP Challenger Tour history in becoming just the second player to achieve 300 match wins. He joined Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo as the only men to have crossed the threshold.

"It’s really great for my tennis career," Lu told ATPWorldTour.com. "For me it is very important. Every year I’ve been consistent in playing at my level and to be the second player to reach 300 Challenger wins is great. I’ll keep going and hopefully I can win even more matches and at the tour-level events too."

Why is Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo censored in the post above?

I vaguely remember his Wimbledon 2010 run, good times indeed. Great achievement for Lu but he's a complete nonfactor at the tour level (besides the WB QF). Anyway, I apologize for raining on his parade, he's had a long and storied career, I think he ought to be proud, did very well to himself.

RRH and Rendy - two players who should have pushed on at tour level but never seemed to quite get it going consistently. Any player winning 300 matches at Challenger level should be more of a factor in the major leagues in my opinion.

In baseball terms, Lu is a player between MLB and 3A.
He is still the greatest player in Taiwanese tennis history so far, in any form. :)

Well, to be fair, he also has some achievements on the main tour.
A QF in a Slam, especially at Wimbledon, with a tremendous win on one of the best specialist of the surface of the decades, is something.
He also played one final. Probably he could've won a title in a little ATP 250.

Congrats to him. The few matches I've seen him play on the main tour, he has always showed heart.
