Carlos Alcaraz vs Sebastian Korda: Match Prediction
Carlos will come into the tie with a career indoor hardcourt record of 9-3 and is 9-3 on the surface this season while having a season record of 47-19 across all surfaces. Korda will take the court with a career indoor hardcourt record of 23-14 and is 13-4 on the surface this season and has a 36-19 record for the season across all surfaces.
Looking at these numbers, their recent form and performances in the past few weeks, it will be difficult to predict an outright winner. While Carlos has wrapped up games quickly, Korda has fought his way back into the matches to snatch the win. Carlos however remains the favourite but Korda definitely has the potential to swing the match in his favour and claim the title.
Prediction: Carlos Alcaraz wins in 5-sets.
