Sebastian Korda vs Aleksandar Vukic – Match Predictions

Vukic is having a great season and has the highest ranking of his career. He is playing well on this surface and this match can bring a big upset.

Aleksandar Vukic +3.5

Both players prefer the surface in Toronto, which will make this a great match. Korda is having a difficult season struggling with injuries, but he seems back in shape and is the favorite to win this match. Still, Vukic serves excellently, and that would keep him long in this match and give him a chance to win. However, even if Vukic fails to make it to the next round, he is capable of covering the +3.5 games spread.

First set over 9.5 games

Both players serve excellently and there will not be many opportunities for breaks here. Korda is the better overall player and may take control of the match, but that will not happen early in the match as the opening set will go over 9.5 games in total.
