Hyeon Chung becomes first Korean to reach Grand Slam semifinal

GETTYRoger Federer has enjoyed a long and successful career
En route the semi-final, Chung upset the likes of World No. 4 Alexander Zverev and 6-time champion Novak Djokovic before overcoming America's Tennys Sandgren in the quarter-final.
Hyeon Chung has become the world's first Korean athlete to make it to a tennis grand slam semi-final.
That time-out briefly rallied Chung, in just his 17th major match, to win the next game but he was soon forced to yield to Federer, who was making his 382nd Grand Slam outing.
His reward could be a 10th career showdown with defending champion Federer, who is aiming to win through to a record-breaking seventh Open era final at Melbourne Park. He boasts an 8-1 record over Cilic and has never faced Chung before. In the first set, he displayed his power, composure and some attractive shots down the line to which Chung had no answers. "I did pretty well in the end". As a child, an eye doctor told him that focusing on something green could help his eyes focus, and as his brother played tennis, Chung chose to take up the sport too.
"There's enough wear and tear on the body, there's enough tough matches throughout the season that when they happen, you take them. He seems in good shape and I'm happy he's over his back issues that he also had at the end of past year". She lost the U.S. Open final to Sloane Stephens last September but said she was learning with every experience in the majors. "That's probably why a lot of people are stunned (he retired)". "I couldn't tell what was going on with my opponent".
He added that he did not want to put too much pressure and expectation on Chung as "I don't think it's fair".
'So having two days off and not a brutal semis is going to help him a lot and we'll see a fresh and ready Marin this time around. "The rest we will see".
After 1 hour and 2 minutes with the roof closed on Rod Laver Arena, he's now 7-7. The 21-year-old South Korean first burst into the spotlight last November when he defeated Russia's rising star Andrey Rublev to clinch the inaugural Next Generation ATP Finals.
"For sure it wasn't my best start", Halep said after the match. "Anyway, I have to stay calm because the match is not finished yet, so I'm just trying to stay calm until I finish the match".
"That's when you realise there is no way you can come back and you make things really worse, it is better to stop".
Federer had already ruthlessly claimed the first set 6-1 and was cruising 5-2 in the second set, when the Korean made a decision to opt out of the game.
