Jeong-hyeon (no ranking), who wrote the myth of the ‘Australian Open Semifinals’, unfortunately lost in the second game after returning from injury.
Jung Hyun won the men’s professional tennis (ATP) Busan Open Challenger (total prize money of $160,000) singles round 1 (Round of 32) held at the tennis court in Geumjeong Sports Park, Busan on the 9th and defeated Yasutaka Uchiyama (240th) of Japan in 2 hours and 34 minutes. We lost 1-2 (3-6 7-6<7-3> 2-6).
As a result, Hyeon Chung was eliminated in the first round of the two tournaments she had played since returning from her back injury.
Chung Hyeon lost 0-2 (2-6 4-6) to Jordan Thompson (80th, Australia) in the first round of the Seoul Open Challenger last month, his return match after 2 years and 7 months.
Jung Hyeon emerged as a star by reaching the semifinals at the 2018 Australian Open singles, the best ever for a Korean player, but since then, he has not been able to play consistently due to a back injury.스포츠토토
The last time Jung Hyun won in an ATP competition was against Baptiste Cripart (France) in the first round of the French Open qualifying round in September 2020, two years and eight months ago.
Jeong-hyeon, who lost the first set to Uchiyama that day, took the second set after a tie-break. An elaborate shot that shook the opponent left and right shone in the tiebreak.
However, his defeat turned darker as he broke his 3rd serve game in the 3rd set after a deuce match 4 times.
In other games in the first round, Korean players lost one after another.
Nam Ji-seong (523rd, Sejong City Hall) lost to Gabriel Diallo (162nd, Canada) 0-2 (3-6 3-6), and Hong Sung-chan (194th, Sejong City Hall) lost to Jason Leung (319th, Taiwan). 0-1 (2-6 0-3) in a situation where it was defeated by withdrawal.
Only Jung Yoon-seong (133rd, Uijeongbu City Hall) defeated Woo Dong-lin (181st, Taiwan) 2-0 (7-5, 6-2) and was the only Korean player to advance to the round of 16.
Jung Yun-seong competes with Diallo to advance to the quarterfinals. This is the first match between the two players.
