Sebastian Korda v Lorenzo Musetti Head to Head
The pair have played each other before, on the clay of Lyon, back in the early months of the year, Musetti winning in three sets.
Korda Has One Foot in the Semi-Finals
Korda has one foot in the semi-finals after two successive victories in Milan, although the manner of his victory over Sebastian Baez on Wednesday, was much more comfortable then the way he had to battle back from two sets down in his first round robin match against the French player Hugo Gaston.
The first set saw the Argentine clay court specialist take a surprise advantage when he was the first to break, but Korda hit back to level straight away, and, then in the resultant tie break proved to be much the stronger layer.
Korda saved a break point at the start of the second half but it went with serve from then on until the sixth game, when Baez, serving to stay in the set, dropped his serve once more.
Baez was under constant pressure on serve now, and, although he saved break points in successive serve games in the third set, he was merely postponing the inevitable and another break gave Korda the match.
Musetti Gives Himself a Chance
Musetti has given himself a chance of reaching the knock-out stages, with a hard fought victory over Gaston on Wednesday, in what was a must win match for both players, after each lost tier opening matches, the Italian losing to Baez in four sets.
It was the Italian who had the better of the first set against Gaston, although he could not force the break he needed, and it eventually went to a tie-break which he won.
The second set followed a similar pattern in that there were no breaks in the regulation games, although both players wasted opportunities.
Another tie-break ensued, which fluctuated in fortunes, but, having seen two set points saved, Musetti converted the third.
At that point, the Italian seemed to have the winning line in sight, but Gaston had other ideas.
In the third set he saved two break points which would have given Musetti the chance to serve for the match, and then broke himself to take it to a fourth set.
That again saw the momentum swing both ways, with Musetti again missing break points which would have given him the chance to serve out, and Gaston taking full advantage by breaking next game to level the match.
Having squandered a two set lead, Musetti was on the back foot, and had to save a break point in the opening service game of the decisive fifth set. However, he survived that, and soon had two break points of his own, which he was unable to convert.
But with Gaston serving to stay in the match, he faltered at the wrong time, gave Musetti a match point and he gratefully accepted it.
Korda v Musetti Prediction and Tip
Korda is already virtually guaranteed a place in the semi-finals, so all that is in question is whether he will progress as Group winner or runner-up. Musetti needs to win and hope the result in the Bez v Gaston match goes his way.
Musetti won their previous match but that was on clay when he was enjoying a purple patch of form. On the indoor hard courts of Milan, Korda will start the clear favourite.
