Hyeon Chung believes that he can get inspired by tennis legends like Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in order to improve his game. When asked if he feels he is part of the next generation, a humble Chung replied: “I hope I can be.
They are all great players. I am just trying to learn more from them and keep fighting”. Explaining his straight-set loss to Ernests Gulbis on Thursday, Chung added: "I thought I had a good start in the first set but I started to lose points and it became tough to comeback then, but I will need to improve in the coming season and hope to come back here next year."
Gulbis said: "I think I started slow and he (Chung) was much better in the first set but I managed to comeback to save the set from 2-5 down and the rhythm helped me in saving the match”. A good chance for Chung to learn from Federer would have probably been to play the Hopman Cup, but Korea hasn't many good players.
Just about the Hopman Cup, through his official Twitter account the former world No. 1 Todd Woodbridge revealed a funny thing on Roger Federer and Serena Williams after their mixed doubles match in Perth. 'One of the yet untold stories of this pic last night is that Serena grabbed Federer racquet and took it home as a souvenir!', wrote Woodbridge.
Federer took a rest on Wednesday staying in Rottnest Island with his team and family. He went at the garden and he sit near a table. Some fans took pictures. ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
