O encontro entre Novak Djokovic e Hyeon Chung foi acompanhado a par e passo por várias figuras do universo tenístico, que através das respetivas contas de Twitter não deixaram de manifestar agrado (e surpresa) com a exibição do jovem sul-coreano.
O próprio Novak Djokovic, seis vezes campeão do Australian Open, fez questão de felicitar o seu opositor — primeiro em conferência de imprensa, depois numa mensagem publicada naquela rede social.
Aqui estão algumas das reações recolhidas:

Chung is doing to Novak what Novak has done to everyone for the past 5years. #ausopen

Amazing performance by Hyeon Chung. So calm, so quick, so good. Two great stories with Sandgren and Chung to play for a spot in the semi’s. Looking forward to it already!

His ability to move, absorb pressure and hit incredible shots while on the full stretch is outstanding. #AusOpen
