Jung Hyun lost to Japan’s Yasutaka Uchiyama 2-1 after 2 hours and 34 minutes in the men’s professional tennis ATP Busan Open Challenger singles first round held today (9th) at the Geumjeong Sports Park tennis court in Busan.
As a result, Chung Hyeon was eliminated in the first round in two consecutive tournaments after returning from a back injury.
Jeong Hyeon lost 2-0 to Australia’s Jordan Thompson 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.
The last time Jung Hyun won in an ATP competition was against Baptiste Cripart of France in the first round of the French Open qualifier in September 2020, two years and eight months ago.
After losing the first set to Uchiyama that day, Chung Hyun took the second set after a tie-break.
An elaborate shot that shook the opponent left and right shone in the tiebreak.
However, his loss deepened as he broke his 3rd serve game in 3rd set to deuce 4 times.
In other games in the first round, Korean players lost one after another.
Nam Ji-sung lost to Canada’s Gabriel Diallo 2-0, while Hong Sung-chan withdrew from Taiwan’s Jason Loong.
