Two students active in the competition
The tournament includes team forms and individual events, each with four groups. The XJTU tennis team participated in the group match in which all competitors are ordinary college students who have not enjoyed extra points in sports or a privileged admission policy during the college entrance examination.
Even faced with a harsh high temperature environment, the team members were not afraid of difficulties and responded to each game with high morale and unyielding spirit.
As "golden partners", Li and Zhang advanced all the way to the finals. They once took an opposing team's match point and scored consecutive points when they were behind, and eventually won the runner-up position in the competition, which fully demonstrated XJTUers' spirit of never giving up.
