In this French Open 2023 first round, we will see two players who still don’t know what it means to win on clay. For Mcdonald it has been a nightmare to overcome at least the first round, the same happened with Korda, who fails to show his best version on this surface. One of the two will put an end to their bad momentum in the first round at Roland Garros.
These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Korda to Win
Despite the dismal run of consecutive defeats, McDonald was more active in this last month than his next. So we are likely to see a better performance. Korda’s return to the courts has also been disappointing, but he has been very close to winning. Mcdonald is likely to show a good level but he can’t keep it up for so many sets so we expect Sebastian Korda to be the winner.
Over 36.5 Games
Both players have made a lot of mistakes in their last matches, so it wouldn’t be strange if both of them drop a set. So, it is likely that this duel will be prolonged and we will have a lot of games. Of the 4 sets, he played in the last month, 3 of them were tiebreaks, increasing the number of games played.
Mackenzie Mcdonald vs Sebastian Korda Preview
Here you can find out a great Mackenzie Mcdonald vs Sebastian Korda preview, and take note about the right ATP tennis prediction.
The 28-year-old veteran hasn´t had a great performance since the start of the clay-court season, in fact, his performance in the first half of the year was not very outstanding either. His best result was reaching the semi-finals in Delray Beach.
In the last month McDonald’s participated in five tournaments on clay, in none of them he managed to advance at least one round. Not even in Cagliari Challenger, a lower-ranked tournament.
Korda accumulates three consecutive defeats after losing the quarter-finals in Melbourne, and later in Madrid and Rome. The American tennis player was inactive for three months, from his participation in the Australian Open until the Madrid Open, he did not participate in any tournament.
After a great start where he even reached the final in Adelaide, where he lost to Novak Djokovic, we expected a better performance from the 22-year-old. However, since his return to the court, he has not been the same.
Mcdonald vs Korda Head to Head
In the first round of Roland Garros, we will have for the first time the duel between Mackenzie Mcdonald and Sebastian Korda. Neither of them have won on clay this season so this duel will break that streak.
