Hyeon Chung is still dealing with physical issues. The 21-year-old has withdrawn from the Barcelona Open on Wesnesday due to a right ankle injury that he has been suffering with for weeks.He was supposed to face the American Bjorn Fratangelo in the opening round match, on the Central Court.
Chung had skipped the US. Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston earlier this month, he hoped to compete again this week but the start of his clay-court season is delayed. Chung could return next week in Munich. He plans to have a busy schedule, as he is committed to play Madrid and Rome Masters, Lyon and Roland Garros as well.
On grass, Stuttgart, Halle and Wimbledon. Eight tournaments in a two-month time, which could be too much. This year Chung had already withdrawn from Sofia and New York due to a foot issue. 'My goal this year is to be injury-free', he had said after reaching Australian Open semifinals, since in the previous seasons he didn't manage to achieve it.
