Jiri Vesely vs Sebastian Korda – Match Predictions

Over 36.5 Games

With both Vesely and Korda will seeking to assert their dominance, this encounter promises an intriguing battle on the green surface. This is the ninth time Vesely will be appearing at Wimbledon and he has gone past the first hurdle in each of his prior attempts. In Korda, he has a sublime rival who has all the ingredients to challenge for the title. Three of Vesely’s last five matches have needed extra time and we believe it will be the case this time around as well. It will be an extended first-round duel, one that sees Over 36.5 games to find a winner.

3-1 to Sebastian Korda

Korda is the bookmakers’ favourite but getting past Vesely will not be an easy task. While the Czech ace has been down on his luck, losing his last five matches, he has shaved a set off his rivals on three occasions. Moreover, Korda is on a two-match losing streak and down on the momentum that saw him reach the Queen’s Club Championships’ semi-finals. Anticipating a heated battle, we believe blows will be exchanged with Korda ultimately coming out on top with a 3-1 set score.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players have fared so far in the Wimbledon.

Jiri Vesely

Vesely’s fitness problems have hindered his progress but he remains a threat at the All England Club. He has progressed to the second round in each of his eight prior attempts and will have similar designs this time around. The big-serving Czech player is a difficult beast to tame on grass courts and reached the third round at last year’s Wimbledon Championships despite playing a paltry four games on the surface. Recently, he showcased his class against Stefanos Tstsipas at the 2023 French Open, pushing the Greek ace in the 196-minute duel.

Sebastian Korda

Korda has built his reputation for his exceptional skills on the grass court. With his powerful strokes and strategic playing style, the 22-year-old showcased at the Queen’s Club Championships that he can cause anyone problems. Dan Evans, Frances Tiafoe and Cameron Norrie, all succumbed to him at the Queen’s Club with eventual champion Carlos Alcaraz stopping his progress. Injuries kept him out of last year’s event and he will have designs of emulating his fourth-round exit in the 2021 Wimbledon event.
