Nadal Flying Against Chung At US Open
Second seed Rafael Nadal wasted no time getting down to business on Sunday at the US Open, racing through the opening set 6-3 against South Korean qualifier Hyeon Chung in their third-round clash.
A backhand sent just wide from Chung at 2-3 gave the Spaniard the first break of the match. The slight advantage was all the three-time US Open champion needed and he fired an ace to take the early lead.
Nadal leads Chung 2-0 in their FedEx ATP Head2Head series and has won all five sets they’ve played. The winner of this match faces No. 14 seed John Isner of the United States or former US Open champion Marin Cilic of Croatia, the No. 22 seed.
