ATP Next Gen Finals: Chung beats Shapovalov on day one

Tennis

South Korea's Hyeon Chung got the better of third seed Denis Shapovalov in the opening round of the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan, Italy.

In a tournament which is trailing a shot-clock, first-to-four sets, and no doubles tramlines on court, Chung prevailed 1-4, 4-3 (5), 4-3 (4), 4-1 in just over an hour and a half.

It wasn't the only surprise result on the first day of the tournament as Daniil Medvedev beat second seed Karen Khachanov 2-4, 4-3 (6), 4-3 (3), 4-2.

Elsewhere Borna Coric defeated American Jared Donaldson in straight sets.
