Chung Hyeon will compete in a singles match for the first time in two years and seven months at the ATP Seoul Open Challenger, which opens on the 24th.
According to former Uijeongbu City Hall coach Yoo Jin-seon, tournament director, on the 18th, “Jung Hyun received a wild card in the finals and the final decision was made to participate in the singles.”
Hyeon Chung, who received attention as the first Korean player to reach the semifinals at the 2018 Australian Open singles, suffered from a chronic back injury and left the tour after the French Open qualifiers in September 2020.메이저놀이터
After undergoing rehabilitation for about two years, Jeong-hyeon competed in doubles with Kwon Soon-woo (Dangjin City Hall) at the ATP250 Korea Open held in Seoul last year and advanced to the semifinals. After the Korea Open, Jeong Hyeon predicted to participate in the singles at the Seoul Open Challenger last October, but withdrew due to a recurrence of a back injury.
After about seven months of rehabilitation, he will make an official comeback at the Seoul Open Challenger held this year. After the singles match, Jeong Hyeon plans to participate in the doubles match depending on her physical condition.
Hong Seong-chan (Sejong City Hall, 200th place), the only Korean player to participate in the finals, and last year’s winner Ritu (Australia, 230th place), Christopher, who defeated Kwon Soon-woo at this year’s Australian Open Eubanks (USA, 90th), last year’s Busan Open doubles winner Max Purcell (88th) and Jordan Thompson (Australia, 91st) are scheduled to participate.
