Men’s tennis player Chung Hyun Jung has returned to the court after recovering from injury and is set to compete at Wimbledon.
On the official Wimbledon website on Friday, Jung Hyun was named to the qualifying list for the men’s singles event.
This marks his first major tournament in two years and nine months.
Chung made a splash at the 2018 Australian Open in singles, defeating Novak Djokovic (Serbia) in the quarterfinals and reaching the semifinals, but he hasn’t played consistently since due to a back injury.
The French Open in September 2020 was the last singles event he competed in, and after focusing on rehabilitation, he made his comeback in April this year at the ATP Seoul Open Challenger, his first singles event in two years and seven months.
After competing in the Busan Open Challenger, Jung Hyun traveled to the United Kingdom for the Wimbledon Challenge, where he has been working to improve his game by competing in a series of grass-court Challenger tournaments, including the Servitel Trophy and the Rossio Open.
Chung has been knocked out in the first round of all four tournaments he has played since his return.
After making significant changes to his serving stance in an effort to eliminate back pain, Chung has gotten used to his new serve, but his overall game is still down.
After competing in the Ross Open in Nottingham this week, Chung will next play in the Ilkley Open next week.
In his previous four tournaments, he went straight to the main draw, but this time he’ll most likely have to start with qualifying.
Once he’s done, he’ll look to qualify for Wimbledon.
Chung has good memories of Wimbledon, having finished runner-up in the junior men’s singles in 2013.
