Tennis player Chung Hyeon advanced to the round of 16 at the BNP Paribas Open.
Chung, ranked 26th in the latest ATP rankings, beat Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic 2-0 in the third round of men's singles in Indian Wells, California on Monday.
This was Chung's first victory over Berdych after having confronted him three times. Berdych climbed to world No. 4 in 2015, having won the men's single title 13 times.
Chung will now face Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay for a spot in the quarterfinal. If Chung wins, he is likely to face world No. 1 Roger Federer again in the next round.
