Correction of player names and numbers
Names of non-European players could be confusing and spelled correctly.
Jun-Ju Shin to be Jung-Ju Shin. Keon-hiw Cho to be Keon-Hwi Cho (in 2nd para.)

57,3 percent =57.3 percent score 54,9 score =54.9 percent score

Just for information. Not trying to find faults and criticize.
