YOUNG ATP STARS INSPIRE CHENGDU SCHOOL KIDS

 

World No.21 Felix Auger-Aliassime and former world No.19 Hyeon Chung visited the Jinhui Primary School this morning to conduct a tennis clinic with twenty students.

 

The 19-year-old Canadian and 23-year-old Korean, who are both playing in the Chengdu Open for the second year running, supervised a variety of training drills and provided the kids with tips to improve their form and increase their confidence.

 

The pair then picked a partner each to play seven-point tie-break mini match, which was won by Chung and his teammate.

 

“It was a nice activity, I’m always up for things like this. It’s nice to put a smile on the kids faces and see how they play and inspire them. It’s something that I do back home, but to come to Chengdu in China and play with the local kids – it’s nice yeah,” said a cheerful Auger-Aliassime.

 

“It was a fun time and great experience today. I’m happy to be back in Chengdu. I have great memories here and love to play here. My body feels healthy now and I hope to play well this time in the Chengdu Open,” said Chung, who picked up the 2019 International Challenger Chengdu in July this year. It was his first tournament after a five-and-a-half month injury layoff.
