Vasek Pospisil vs Sebastian Korda: Preview
Barring a quarterfinals appearance on the grass courts of Eastbourne, Pospisil has been visibly struggling on the ATP tour in 2021. He comes into this match after beating Emilio Gomez in three sets in the opening round. Pospisil’s serving (10 aces) was the key in helping him win the opening encounter, despite being a set down. Moreover, the Canadian is yet to beat a big ticket player in this season till now. For the year, Pospisil has only won five matches to eight defeats. As far as the hard courts are concerned for 2021, the 31-year-old has won only two matches.
On the other hand, the young American comes into this contest with plenty of momentum and confidence behind his back. The 21-year-old surprised one and all by making the quarterfinals of the Miami Masters, early in the year and also won the title in Parma on the clay, ahead of the French Open. Given his impressive results, Korda has moved to No.45 in the ATP rankings. He has won 26 matches for the season till now, out of which nine have come on the hard courts. Being the No.12 seed in Washington, the young American was given a bye in the first round.
