As our Rotterdam Open preview confirms, Alex de Minaur is one of the top seeds in the main draw of this event. To be specific, he is the number 5 seed, while his opponent, Sebastian Korda, is unseeded. These two guys have met twice in the past two, and the head-to-head is level at 1-1.
With this in mind, let me get into my predictions for this game right now.
De Minaur to win @ 10/21 (1.48)
Alex de Minaur is one of the most improved players on the ATP Tour at the moment, in my opinion. He is ranked 11 in the world due to his results in January, and he has enjoyed a nice break since the Australian Open. So for me, he will be fresh and ready to score a second win over Korda in this opener.
Three total sets @ 11/8 (2.38)
Although I firmly believe that Alex de Minaur will win this match, I can’t deny that Sebastian Korda is a threat on indoor hard courts. He has a big serve and huge groundstrokes, and he has been ranked right up there in the past. Furthermore, he made the third round of the Australian Open, so he’s playing decent tennis, and this could push the game to three sets.
Alex De Minaur vs Sebastian Korda odds
The current odds indicate a probability of 67.70% for de Minaur, while the chance for Korda to win is 40%.
A tricky first round for the 5th seed in Rotterdam
As far as possible first-round opponents go, de Minaur wouldn’t have chosen Korda from the pack. Then again, this sets the stage for an exciting first round, and I’d like to give a preview for both guys now.
Alex De Minaur preview
De Minaur is a bit of a force of nature these days, as proven by his results in the United Cup and Australian Open in January. This has helped him to a current ranking of 11 in the world. Therefore, he will be the most confident player here, especially since he beat Korda in their last meeting.
Sebastian Korda preview
Korda has been ranked as high as 23 in the world, so the fact he is unseeded here shouldn’t be focused on too heavily. Additionally, he has beaten de Minaur in the past. Sure, this was back in 2022 on a different surface, but it’s still good for his belief.
De Minaur vs Korda head to head
The head-to-head for de Minaur and Korda stands at 1-1. Korda won their first meeting at Wimbledon in 2022 in four sets. However, de Minaur won their most recent meeting at the 2022 Paris Masters in three sets.
