Nice R1: Mathieu P-H. def. Chung H. 7-6(3) 6-3

Chung was up 4-1 in the first, against one of the biggest chokers in tennis ever and still managed to blow it. Out of all the youngsters, Chung is definitely the worst.

Chung is out of top 100, he's been in freefall this year. Kind of looked promising when he made the triple TB against Wawrinka at USO, but he's in some serious trouble now.

Expected loss sadly. Chung just hasn't built on his promise from last season. Still time for him, hopefully he gets a result on the grass somewhere.

Nice of PHM to go 4-1 down and create such a lucrative betting opportunity.

Chung really needs some mental application. But I guess Coric was in the same boat as well when he faced PHM.

Too bad. His 20th birthday is Thursday, would have been good to keep inside the Top 100 (at least Live).

Not sure if freefall is the right word for Chung, more of an expected regression. If he achieved his high ranking and all those ATP entries by actual big match wins it would've been one thing, but it was mostly thru low tier(player field-wise) Asian Challengers. Players taking "good losses" to top players are aplenty, but is not a good indicator for the rankings.

I mean, I'm not sure if Chung beat more top100 players than your average challenger player last year. After half a season this year, he has three such wins. It will be better for him to be ranked appropriately and work on his game in a winnable environment. Was clearly overranked around the 50-60 mark, whether that was still impressive considering his age is another matter.

Damn, I really thought Chung could hang out with the big boys. As it seems, he's just not there yet.
Goes down to #111 in live rankings.

Re: Nice R1: Mathieu P-H. def. Chung H. 7-6(3) 6-3

Ah I don't get this I've seen him push top 20 players really far and then he loses to total mugs. Well PHM, could be worse.. but still.

Get a coach. I don't care if people are saying that he just vultured challengers, maybe he did. But he is capable of playing at a very high level and i've seen him do it a number of times. He's got some potential but doesn't have that clutchness for whatever reason. I really thought he could have won against Isner in Houston. But he's just been total crap since then.

Re: Nice R1: Mathieu P-H. def. Chung H. 7-6(3) 6-3

You all are underrating PHM.

On red clay, he should beat Chung 10-10

Chung is lost on this surface

I watched the second set and he plays on clay exactly like he does on hard court.

Big serve and fh.

But, can't grind out long points.

He missed too many shots trying to keep the points short.

Chung has been struggling with a back problem for a while now. He needs to sort it out first.
