Sebastian Korda v Antoine Hoang Head to Head
No previous matches have been played between Korda and Hoang before this.
Korda Sends Shockwaves Through De Minaur
Korda’s rise through to a top-50 player has been equal parts steady and brilliant. The kind of names he has scalped in his efforts to break into that kind of ranking speaks volumes about his talent and work-rate and in the first round here at Wimbledon, another top-15 player bore the brunt of that.
The American, who had never played at Wimbledon before this season made a sparkling debut against de Minaur as he clinched a 6-3, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (5) win over his opponent in his opener. The match lasted three hours and 29 minutes.
A break apiece in the first two sets was all it needed for Korda to pocket a two sets to love lead and when things got tough, the American himself refused to get broken in the third set.
While Korda failed to win that tie-breaker and then lost the advantage of an early break to fall 3-4 behind with de Minaur serving, he showed his gritty side of things. He broke right back to push it into another tie-breaker and this time around clinched the encounter off his third match-point.
Scratchy Hoang Wins Maiden Wimbledon Match
He is 25 years old, and has once made it to the third round at a Grand Slam before this but ranked outside the 150th with a career-best of 98th does not speak of a player who has achieved the kind of success he would like. And for most part, Hoang looked like he was going down to debutant and fellow qualifier Zhizhen Zhang.
It was a late revival that saw Hoang come through in his second successive five-setter, defeating his Chinese opponent 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-2 to seal his maiden second round berth at Wimbledon.
Hoang, who had earlier been stretched to five sets by Alex Molcan in his third qualifying round, was on court for three hours and 46 minutes before his opponent fizzled out in the final two sets.
Hoang’s 63 winners obviously helped but what also did the trick in the final two sets was the way in which he controlled his unforced errors – just eight in the final two sets – to take pocket the match.
Against Korda, however, he will need to do a lot better.
Korda v Hoang Prediction and Tip
This looks to be a straightforward one in favour of Korda and but we believe Hoang could put up a fight in the first couple of sets at least. Korda to win but to drop a set on its way.
