Chung's game is promising but he needs to work on his fitness (seemed really out of breath even after short rallies). Berdych was solid.

A lot closer than the score indicates. A couple of minor collapses by Chung after going 30-0 on serve.

Chung had a break in each set but couldn't hold on to the advantage. Should be a bit if a confidence booster for him to know he played well against a top 10 player.

Too many unforced errors from Chung but he showed flashes at least, Berdych is a bad match-up for pretty much any not fully developed teen, so the close scoreline is a plus point.

Tricky match; Berd was solid throughout, but he wasn't great. Good opening match.

Chung played amazing, he will surely be shooting up the rankings this year if he stays fit. Berdych is one of the toughest draws possible for lower ranked guys, let alone a developping 18yo, just too powerful and consistent.

Decent match from Chung but showed his age at moments. Bit of a bizarre forehand technique but didn't seem to be a weakness. It'll give him confidence that he played a good match in his first one against a top 10 player. He really did stick in the rallies which is very good considering his playing one of the best ball strikers on tour.

Extremely promising this Chung. He's got a very good backhand, forehand's a little shaky at the moment but he's a tactically sound player and overall game is definitely pro caliber right now.

His technique on every shot is really weird. Hope it doesn't prove to be a big problem later on his career. By that I mean, when he comes close to TOP20.

Improvements can be made for sure. Nole's game is a good example. He's worked a lot on his FH and serve quite a bit over the years, and of course his fitness.

Have to say impressed with how Chung did especially in his BH. FH needs work, but he's still relatively young to develop that. Impressive how he was able to handle the strokes of Berdych although Berdych just seems to be in no-urgency mode. Good for Berdych though to not give away the 2nd Set.

Chung had a good game and he could have pushed it into a third set, Berdych just too big a hitter for him, but with time he'll get better
