Hyeon Chung claims semi-final place at NextGen ATP Finals in Milan

Hyeon Chung claims semi-final place at NextGen ATP Finals in Milan”

Later South Korea's Hyeon Chung, who was asked to remove a model's glove with his teeth to reveal his group in the draw on Sunday, looked more comfortable beating Canada's Denis Shapovalov 1-4, 4-3, 4-3, 4-1.

The 54th-ranked Chung made it two wins out of two in the round robin format being used in the inaugural edition of the under-21 version of the ATP Tour finals.

"I like shot clock, because sometimes I get a warning because I have to clean my glasses", said Chung, who has worn prescription sports glasses throughout his career and took up tennis to improve his eyesight. Chung failed to serve out for the match in the sixth game of the fourth set as Quinzi went on to force a tie-break.

The Croatian beat Daniil Medvedev 4-3 (5), 2-4, 4-1, 4-2 in an hour and 34 minutes. "The first two sets were extremely tough".

Guinea pigs they may be, but a "hit and giggle" end to the year it was not as world number 45 Khachanov and Medvedev, ranked 20 places lower, produced a high-octane duel, Medvedev opening Group B with a 2-4, 4-3 (6), 4-3 (3), 4-2 win.

Second seed Karen Khachanov also recorded his first win with a straight sets victory over American Jared Donaldson.

Despite double-faulting on match point, however, Shapovalov claimed victory and will need to beat Rublev to reach the semis.

"I think it was really physical", Coric said.

Shapovalov will play his final group match on Thursday against Andrey Rublev of Russian Federation, who is also 1-1 so far.

The tournament has brought together eight emerging stars tipped to succeed the likes of Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in the future.
