Melbourne | Chung ousts Zverev

Alexander Zverev decided not to play last year’s inaugural NextGen finals in Milan as he had qualified for the senior ATP Masters Final at the O2 in London, so the battle for the ‘age group’ between the 20-year-old German and the NextGen champion, Hyeon Chung, was an intriguing third round match-up in Melbourne.
