Hyeon Chung to miss Houston as injuries begin to mount
Hyeon Chung has been forced to withdraw from the ATP event in Houston in April, he has announced.
The South Korean, who shot to prominence during his run to the Australian Open semi-final this year, is reportedly struggling with a string of injury complaints.
Sorry to have to withdraw from @mensclaycourt . One of my favorite events. Wishing everyone in Houston a great week.
— Hyeon Chung (@HyeonChung) March 30, 2018
Writing on his official twitter account, Chung said: ‘Sorry to have to withdraw from US Men’s Clay Court. One of my favorite events. Wishing everyone in Houston a great week.”
Chung has endured a tough start to the year, physically, pulling out of Sofia and New York already, and retiring hurt in the Australian Open. He is also not entered into the Monte Carlo Open in mid-April, so it’s likely he’ll aim to be back fit again to play at Barcelona at the end of the month.
