Murray To Meet Hyeon Chung At Surbiton Challenger; How To Watch

South Korea’s Chung playing third match since returning from injury

Three-time major champion Andy Murray will clash against former World No. 19 Hyeon Chung in a blockbuster first-round match Monday at the ATP Challenger Tour event in Surbiton, Great Britain.

The grass-court contest adds to Murray’s numerous encounters against star players on the Challenger Tour in the last month. At the Challenger 175 event in Aix-en-Provence, Murray ousted Gael Monfils and World No. 17 Tommy Paul en route to his first title at any level since 2019. The former World No. 1 also battled against three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka at the Bordeaux Challenger, where the Swiss earned a straight-sets victory.

The second seed Murray, who received a wild card into the Surbiton Challenger, will meet Chung for the first time. The 27-year-old Chung is competing in just his third tournament since returning from a back injury he suffered in 2020. A semi-finalist at the 2018 Australian Open, Chung suffered a loss in the opening round of both the Seoul and Busan Challengers in April and May, respectively.
