Hyeon Chung —
A surprise Australian Open semifinal performance, featuring upsets over Djokovic, his idol, and Zverev, made the 22yearold Chung with the funky white eyeglasses a Next Gen prospect to watch. Quarterfinal results at Indian Wells and Miami reinforced this consensus. A right ankle injury, however, stopped his momentum.
With relentless power, a topnotch serve return, excellent mobility and terrific composure, the best player in Korean history should rebound strongly at the US Open.
