Sebastian Korda v Nino Serdarusic Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first match between the 21 year old American, and the Croat, who is three years older.
NextGen Finalist Korda Looking to Go Further
Korda has already booked his place in next month’s NextGen ATP Finals in Milan after a season which has seen the American break into the top 100 in the world for the first time, and keep rising up the rankings.
He started the year strongly, reaching his first senior ATP final in Delray Beach, and then getting to the quarter-final in Miami, recording his first win over a top ten player along the way when he beat Diego Schwartzman.
And then in May he won his maiden ATP title on clay in Parma. The young American demonstrated his versatility by reaching the quarter-final in Halle, where he reached the quarter-final in hs first ever tournament on grass, and carried that form into Wimbledon, where he got to the fourth round, by far his best result in a Grand Slam to date.
His form has tailed-off since then and he ahs suffered a series of early defeats in tournaments, including his last appearance, which was at Indian Wells, where he was beaten in the opening round.
He will be hoping though to find some form ahead of Milan.
Serdarusic Makes it as a Wildcard
Serdarusic may be an unfamiliar name to some.
The Croat made his first appearance as a wildcard on home soil in the Croatia Open in 2016, but ahs spent most of the intervening period on the junior tours, where he has appeared in 21 finals, winning seven of them.
All of them have been on his favourite surface of clay and include his two final defeats this August in Verona, and Warsaw.
However, he did win a Challenger doubles title in Bosnia in September, and earlier this month, lost another doubles final in Naples.
He was last in competitive action on home soil in Losing, in a Challenger tournament on clay, losing in the second round to the Italian Marco Cecchinato.
Korda v Serdarusic Prediction and Tip
Korda, although not in the best of form recently, will start the heavy favourite against the wildcard with little experience on the main tour, and who much prefers clay.
