Lorenzo Sonego v Sebastian Korda Head to Head

It’s 1-1 from their previous two meetings, both of those matches took place this year and both were Round of 16 affairs. Sonego won on the hard court of Montpellier, while Korda won on clay in Parma.

Sonego Eases Past Basilashvili

World No. 23 Lorenzo Sonego of Italy eased past Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili in the opening round of the San Diego Open.

Not broken once in the match, Sonego converted two of his four break point opportunities to beat the World No. 34, 6-3, 6-4 in an hour and 20 minutes and improve his season record to 26-19.

Seeded ninth in the tournament, the Italian served 12 aces, won 84% points on the first serve and dropped just 13 points while serving in the match.

Hard courts are not Sonego’s forte and while he thrived on the other surfaces, winning a title on clay in Sardegna and reaching the semifinals of the Rome Masters alongwith finishing runner-up in Eastbourne, his hard court form remained poor as he brought in a 10-12 season record to San Diego.

Having outplayed a pretty good hard court player in Basilashvili in the first round, Sonego will be high on confidence and will be looking to build on the first round success.

Korda Overcomes Paul

It took two hours and 12 minutes for American Sebastian Korda to finally overcome compatriot Tommy Paul in the first round.

Building on what has been a brilliant year so far, Korda won the first set with ease with a single break of serve in the sixth game of the set; but he stumbled in the second failing to hold serve at 5-6 and allowing the match to head to the decider.

It was a tough start to the third set with Paul saving a break point in the first game to go 1-0 up and then Korda fending off break points before finally holding serve in the second game. It was all Korda from that point on, as the 21-year-old went on to win six games in a row to finish the match 6-3, 5-7, 6-1.

The win improved Korda to 24-13 in a season that saw him win his maiden title in Parma and finish runner-up at Delray Beach. He was also a quarterfinalist in Miami and reached as far as the fourth round of Wimbledon.

Since that Wimbledon run, he went 2-3 in Washington, Cincinnati and the U.S. Open combined. Those numbers aren’t too encouraging but having started well in the tournament, Korda will be looking to make another quarterfinal.

Sonego v Korda Prediction and Tip

Sonego doesn’t win too many matches on hard courts, and Korda could capitalise on that opportunity, but having lost to the Italian on that very surface this year, he will be a bit anxious. Expect a close contest with Korda surprising the ninth seed.
