The tennis festival kicks off in clear spring weather.
The Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Seoul Open Challenger will be held at the Olympic Tennis Stadium in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 24th to 30th. The ATP Challenger is a lower-tier tournament on the ATP Tour, where players in the world’s top 100 compete. Top players such as Max Purcell (88th, Australia), Christopher Eubanks (90th, USA), and Jordan Thompson (91st) will participate in this event.메이저놀이터
For domestic tennis fans, attention is focused on the participation of Jeong Hyeon, the main character of the ‘Australian Open semifinal myth’. Jeong Hyeon, who competed in a doubles match with Kwon Soon-woo (Dangjin City Hall) at the ATP Tour Korea Open in September last year, was scheduled to compete in a singles match at the Seoul Open, but her return to the singles match was canceled due to an injury.
Jung Hyeon will return to the singles match as a wild card in the final round. It is the first time in two years and seven months since the French Open in September 2020 (dropped out of the preliminary round) that Chung Hyeon played a singles match. Depending on his physical condition, he can also compete in doubles. He hasn’t played doubles in seven months. Jung Hyeon drew attention by reaching the quarterfinals, the highest ever for a Korean player, at the 2018 Australian Open singles, but has since been unable to play an active role on the tour stage due to chronic back injuries.
