Karen Khachanov v Sebastian Korda Head to Head
Khachanov and Korda have never faced off in a competitive match before this.
Khachanov Crashes the Tiafoe Party
Frances Tiafoe had looked good through most of the grass swing but more importantly he had come into his third round match against Khachanov on the back of a huge upset over Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Unfortunately for him that win and the straight-set victory that followed against Vasek Pospisil looked to have done nothing to improve his morale coming up in the third round.
Khachanov, who had had a way easier draw than Tiafoe, was the underdog in this encounter despite being the higher-ranked player but it did not look like that throughout the encounter.
He needed a mere hour and 47 minutes to get past his American opponent, outdoing his opponent in most aspects of the game. Khachanov blasted 13 aces, hit 29 winners and made just 22 unforced errors even as he found out a way to break Tiafoe once apiece in each set.
In return Khachanov did not face a single break-point, thereby strolling into the fourth round at Wimbledon for the second time in his career. He has never gone better though, can he this time?
Korda Sends Out Crowd Favourite Evans
Korda continues to impress with his strong showing at almost every other tournament and in the latest, he has reach the fourth round at Wimbledon participating for first time in this tournament.
To get there, Korda defeated British player Dan Evans with their four-setter lasting two hours and 26 minutes.
The American blasted 13 aces and hit 51 winners to his opponents 0 and 21 respectively, which is where the match tilted balance. In the end, Korda, who dropped a set, carved out a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 win with five breaks of serves in the entire encounter.
Earlier Korda had already gotten past Alex de Minaur and Antoine Hoang to reach the third round and he will now play in the fourth round for the second time in his Grand Slam career. The last time he had reached that far in a major, he ended up playing Rafael Nadal and bowing out easily.
This will be a much better chance for Korda.
Khachanov v Korda Prediction and Tip
Khachanov’s good form makes him a runaway favourite at 1/3 but we aren’t sure the match will end up being this one-sided. Expect Korda to win at least a set if not more.
