Cerundolo’s adaptation and progress on hard courts from his preferred clay courts has been commendable, especially at the Masters level. However, Korda’s resilience and performance on hard courts make him a formidable opponent. While the Argentine struggled to get past Fucsovics in the last round, Korda got the better of reigning champion Medvedev in straight sets. We believe a similar outcome is on the cards as Korda earns a quarter-final slot after a 2-0 victory over Cerundolo.

Under 21.5 Games @ 19/20 (1.95)

Cerundolo’s duel with McDonald saw 22 games played while his encounter with Fucsovics was longer as he came out on top after 31 games. He will have a tough time to stretch the duel with Korda who only needed 17 games to get past Bu and 21 for Medvedev. With Cerundolo likely to be tired after his marathon match, we expect Korda to finish this match early, within 21.5 games.
