Diego Schwartzman vs Sebastian Korda: Match Prediction
The fourth round clash between the two players promises to be a thriller. Despite Schwartzman’s higher rankings, he is by no means the certain favorite to win the match. Sebastian Korda defeated an in-form, Aslan Karatsev in the last round and is running on high confidence. Meanwhile, Schwartzman’s season is back on track after an early exit at the Acapulco Open a couple of weeks ago. The Argentine should fight off Korda in a three set encounter, and book a quarterfinal berth.
