Seong Chan Hong and Kaichi Uchida will face each other in the round of 32 of the 2022 ATP Korea Open on Monday, September 26.
Seong Chan Hong had a lot of potential when he first started his career, but he hasn’t improved with time. He frequently turns in odd performances and suffers odd defeats, which is partly due to his low fitness. The resumption of the Asian swing gives the 25-year-old South Korean new options, and he may still have a respectable career if he gets serious and gives it his all every day. He has now been given a wildcard entrance to play in this week’s ATP Seoul, where he will make his tour-level main-draw debut.
Although Kaichi Uchida lacks Seong Chan Hong’s talent, he nevertheless puts in a lot of effort, travels a lot, and often wins matches and titles on lower-level circuits. In these nine months in Oeiras, he has amassed 27 victories and one Challenger title. The Japanese player entered as a qualifier in Los Cabos a few weeks ago and defeated Brandon Nakashima in the first round, 6-7 2-6, to make his tour-level main-draw debut.
Seong Chan Hong and Kaichi Uchida are scheduled to face each other in the round of 32 of the 2022 ATP Korea Open on Monday, September 26. The tournament is scheduled to begin on September 24 and end on October 2.
The 2022 ATP Korea Open is scheduled to commence on September 24 and go on until October 2 this year. The tournament will have five rounds of play excluding the qualifiers. These are the round of 32, round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals.
