The Italian 26 year-old is at a career high, achieving his highest ranking ever this season. After winning the Cagliari Open and reaching the Fourth Round at Wimbledon, Sonego has suffered back to back Second Round losses and will be looking to regain form as he takes on the young American.

Korda has had a cruising season, also having made a Fourth Round appearance at Wimbledon, earlier this year. Having made the Quarterfinals in both, the Miami Open as well as the Halle Open, as well as winning two titles, the most recent being the Parma Open, where he defeated Sonego in the Second Round, Korda has been gaining momentum that he will undoubtedly wish to keep.

Despite being a seeded player, Sonego won’t be a huge favorite to win the match given his current form. He hasn’t continued his amazing form from the clay season to the hard courts and has struggled on the baseline. Meanwhile, Korda isn’t in the best form too but has shown that he could play well on hard courts. Expect a tight match with the American cruising into the last 8 on home soil.

Prediction: Korda to win in 3 sets.
