- 3 Key match details
Korda got the better of compatriot Ben Shelton while Hurkacz got past Fabian Marozsan to set this semi-final clash in Shanghai Masters.
Sebastian Korda to win @ 1/1 (2.00)
On paper, Hurkacz is the better player and has been riding high despite initial struggles. However, he has not been tested in Shanghai, with his highest-ranked rival being Zheishan Zhang. On the other hand, Korda got the better of third-ranked and second-seed Daniil Medvedev, while also overcoming Shelton. He has undoubtedly proven his pedigree and should triumph against Hurkacz, as he did in the Australian Open.
Over 26.5 Games @ 13/10 (2.30)
The last time Hurkacz and Korda met, it was a five-set battle in the fourth round of the Australian Open. As many as 46 games were played to find a victory and we expect more of the same as both stars arrive at the semi-final stage on the back of three-setters. Korda’s duel with Shelton saw 34 games being played while Marozsan was dispatched off in 26 games. Korda will surely put up a bigger fight than Marozsan and we should see over 26.5 games being played to find a victor.
