Hyeon Chung, knocked out in the first round of the Ross Sea Open


Men’s tennis player Jung Hyeon lost to Nuno Borges (Portugal)스포츠토토, who is ranked 73rd in the world, and suffered four consecutive losses after returning from injury.

Jeong Hyeon lost to Borges 0-2 (3-6, 2-6) in the first round of the singles final on the second day of the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Challenger Ross Sea Open (total prize money 145,000 euros) held in Nottingham, England on the 13th.

Jeong Hyeon, who overcame a chronic back injury and returned to the singles event after 2 years and 7 months through the Seoul Open Challenger last April, was eliminated in the first round in all four tournaments from the Seoul Open to the Ross Sea Open.

Borges is a 26-year-old, one year younger than Chung, and is on the rise, winning two championships in the Challenger competition this season. This is the first time Chung Hyun and Borges have faced each other.

Jung Hyeon rose to stardom by reaching the semifinals in singles at the 2018 Australian Open, but since then he has not been able to play consistently due to a back injury, and has been focusing on rehabilitation since the 2020 French Open.

Jeong Hyeon, who currently has no ranking, is participating in the tournament after being recognized as 159th thanks to the ‘protected ranking’ system, in which a player whose ranking went down because he could not participate in the tournament due to an injury can enter the tournament with the ranking before the injury.

Jung, who is planning to participate in Wimbledon, which opens on the 3rd of next month, will participate in the ATP Ilkley Open Challenger, which opens next week in Ilkley, England.

Meanwhile, in the previous match, Hong Seong-chan (190th, Sejong City Hall) lost to Buyunchao Cutter (165th, China) 0-2 (6-7 <4-7> 2-6) and was also eliminated in the first round.
