Chung Hyeon: Strengths and weaknesses
Chung is lightning quick around the court, getting to several big shots hit by his opponents. His defence and movement are his biggest strengths, as he can use them to outmanoeuvre most players. Chung’s forehand is his stronger wing, although his backhand is also very solid.
His favourite shot is in fact his backhand, which he can hit both crosscourt and down the line with elan. Chung’s serve is a bit of a liability, as he hits a few too many double faults at inopportune times. The pace on his first serve is also not as high as you’d expect a 6’2″ player to produce, and so he doesn’t get a lot of free points in most.
