The 2017 SportMaster Tennis Championships of Maui came to an end with Hyeon Chung (KOR) winning straight sets over Taro Daniel (JPN).

In the first set on Sunday, it was all Daniel as he went two breaks, 5-2 on Chung. Miraculously, Chung kept his head in the game to get back on serve and eventually take the set to a tiebreak and win the set. The next set was all Chung. Chung didn’t allow Daniel to get any rhythm and would eventually take the championship 7-6(3), 6-1.

“He dominated pretty well this week,” complimented Daniel. “I thought the level of the match was pretty decent and I’ll go away from this week pretty satisfied.”

In a brief post-match interview, a relieved Chung thanked his team, parents, and fans.

In the all-American, doubles final, Austin Krajicek/Jackson Withrow pulled off a straight set win over Bradley Klahn/ Tennys Sandgren 6-4, 6-3. This was Klahn’s third final at Maui Challenger event.
