Sebastian Korda vs Thanasi Kokkinakis: Preview
Sebastian Korda is one of the tour’s strongest growing young players. The 21-year-old is the defending champion of the Delray Beach Open tournament. Last year, he reached the quarterfinals of the Miami Masters after defeating prominent players including Fabio Fognini, Aslan Karatsev, and Diego Schwartzman. Before reaching the fourth round of Wimbledon, he won his maiden ATP championship in the Emilia-Romagna Open in Italy. Korda qualified for the NextGen Finals in Milan, winning all of his round-robin matches. He started the season with the Australian Open, where he reached the fourth round. This will be his season’s second tournament.
Throughout his career, Kokkinakis has suffered injuries. The Australian, however, has had an incredible start to the season, reaching the semi-finals of the first warm-up tournament before the Australian Open. He put in an even stronger performance at the second tournament in Adelaide, where he made it to the finals after defeating major players like John Isner and Marin Cilic. In the finals, he defeated Arthur Renderknech, who was a rollercoaster ride to win his maiden career title on home soil.
At the Australian Open, his singles performance fell, as he was knocked out in the first round while winning the men’s doubles championships with Nick Kyrgios. Kokkinakis has been in fine shape recently, and this will be his first tournament since the Australian Open.
Sebastian Korda vs Thanasi Kokkinakis: Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between the two players. The head to head remains at 0-0.
Sebastian Korda vs Thanasi Kokkinakis: Prediction
Both players, although having seen each other play, do not hold the bonus of being familiar with each other’s playing style because they have never played against one other, giving the match an exciting edge. As a result, making a prediction is tough. Both of them are at a good performing stage of their career. However, based on Kokkinaki’s performance this year, he has a better chance at taking on Korda. Expect a spectacular match.
Prediction: Kokkinakis to win in three sets.
