Rublev thrashes Coric, sets up Chung rematch in Next Gen final

Rublev thrashes Coric, sets up Chung rematch in Next Gen final

Hyeon Chung claimed the inaugural Next Gen Finals title by coming from behind to beat top seed Andrey Rublev in Milan on Saturday.

In hot conditions or long matches, however, he often has to wipe down his lenses - meaning he sometimes incurs the wrath of the chair umpire and receives a time warning. "He was the better player on the court", admitted the Croat.

As well as sets being played only to four games, there are no advantage points, shot clocks, no let serves and coaching via headphones at the end of sets.

In the second Group A match, Shapovalov beat local player Gianluigi Quinzi 4-1, 4-1, 3-4 (5), 4-3 (5).

But the rugged 20-year-old edged home in a deciding set tiebreak, winning 4-1 3-4 (8) 4-3 (2) 0-4 4-3 (3) to take runners-up spot in Group A in another match that went past two hours.

At deuce Rublev still had the chance to drag the set into a tiebreak but Chung struck a forehand victor to seal victory in just under two hours of compelling action.

In the semi-finals Chung will face the runner-up in Group B where Daniil Medvedev boosted his hopes of continuing with victory over American Jared Donaldson.

Despite getting his tournament off to a shaky start, No. 1 seed Rublev produced a stunning display to see off Borna Coric in the semifinals, and it was the Russian drew first blood in the final, taking a hard-fought first set in a tie break.
