Jeong-hyeon (26), who started to return to the men’s professional tennis (ATP) tour, the showdown between the world’s strongest tennis players메이저놀이터, will stand on the test table once again at the Busan Open Challenger.

On the 9th, Jeong Hyeon will play the first round of the Busan Open Challenger singles final against Yasutaka Uchiyama (30th, 240th) of Japan. It is the second match in about two weeks for Jeong Hyeon, who returned to the ATP Challenger singles stage after two years and seven months through the Seoul Open Challenger on the 26th of last month.

At that time, Hyeon Chung was defeated 0-2 by Australia’s Jordan Thompson (29th, 80th), the No. 1 seed. After the match, Chung Hyeon expressed his intention to return to the ATP Tour, saying, “I feel good because I can play the game normally without any pain.”

Jeong Hyeon, who was active as a tennis player representing Korea, including reaching the semifinals of the 2018 Australian Open, has been focusing on rehabilitation after stopping tour life since September 2020 due to a back injury. The 19th place in the ATP rankings, which Jung Hyun recorded in April 2018, remains the highest record for a Korean player.

Hong Seong-chan (25, 184th), who advanced to the quarterfinals of the Seoul Open Challenger with Jung Yoon-seong, will play against Jason Chung (33, 319th) of Taiwan in the second match on the first court.

Jordan Thompson, who won the Gwangju Open Challenger that ended on the 7th, and runner-up Max Purcell (25th, 87th) will play on the first court and the last round of the center court, respectively.

The two Australian nationals were seeded 3 and 1 for the tournament.
