Chung Hyeon creates history, reaches Australian Open semi-final for first time

Chung Hyeon creates history, reaches Australian Open semi-final for first time

Why does Hyeon Chung wear glasses?

A rising star on the ATP World Tour, Chung claimed a 6-4 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 win over Sandgren on Rod Laver Arena. The 19-time major victor leads that head-to-head contest 20-6, including all five meetings at Melbourne Park.

Federer had to overcome a shaky start, dropping his opening service game and uncharacteristically questioning chair umpire Fergus Murphy because of a technological fault. "I have to figure that part out a little bit". With Berdych serving for the first set in the ninth game, Federer had challenged a line call. He deserved it, actually. I had one Nike appearance once with Edmund over in London.

Hyeon Chung's fairytale run at the Australian Open continued on Wednesday as he defeated unseeded American Tennys Sandgren to move into the last four.

"And she later posted directly to her compatriot, writing: "@TennysSandgren I don't need or want one. "It will be interesting to see but I think he'll handle it fine". "After deuce, break point". "After deuce, (I wasn't thinking about) the ceremony".

"After the deuce break point, no ceremony, just keep focused".

The 26-year-old Sandgren is from Gallatin, Tennessee, and played two years of tennis at the University of Tennessee.

Sandgren was the 2016 singles champion of the Edwardsville Futures and the now defunct Godfrey Futures, while Chung played in the doubles finals of the 2012 Edwardsville Futures, finishing second with teammate Ji Sung.

"To beat Novak on this court is particularly hard".

One tweet, now deleted, said simply "disgusting", with pictures of Williams and a link to a video where the 36-year-old appears to swear, mid-match, at her opponent. "He's clearly got nothing to lose".

But another reason he took up the sport was because he suffers from astigmatism - hence the glasses - and doctors told him looking at the color green would help his eyesight.

His historic run is now leading some South Korean sports fans to compare him to legendary athletes like Kim and Park, who made their names in sports where South Korea was relatively unknown.

Sandgren also owns a 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 victory of Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland in the second round of the Australian Open.

A finalist at the U.S. Open in 2009 and 2014, Wozniacki needed three sets to beat Mertens on clay in a semifinal in Bastad, Sweden a year ago at their only previous meeting. She's the only major still in the women's draw, but that's been the case since she beat Maria Sharapova in the third round. Two-time French Open finalist Halep has had a tougher road - having to save match points in a third-round win over Lauren Davis that finished 15-13 in the third - to reach the semifinals at Melbourne Park for the first time. Wozniacki won the year-end championships and was a finalist in Auckland this month, with Mertens successfully defending her title in Hobart.
