Match Predict – Handicap (-2) for Khachanov
Korda is currently playing the best tennis of his career. He beat Hurkacz at the Australian Open and earlier knocked last year’s finalist Medvedev out of the title race, whom he defeated in three sets. However, we don’t believe that he can cope with Karen, who is in excellent form.
Total Games Over 38
The tennis players have met each other three times before. So far, the score in the head-to-head encounter is 2-1 in Korda’s favour. Their last encounter was a tight one, although it ended in two sets. Nevertheless, that match turned out to be a high-scoring one. We expect the upcoming match between Khachanov and Korda to be a tight one as well.

Khachanov had an incredible match in the fourth round against Yoshihito Nishioka (6-0, 6-0, 7-6). Just a smash.
In this match, Khachanov took the first 14 games and led with a score of 6-0, 6-0, and 2-0. According to Karen, he was also in shock, completely unable to understand what was happening.

Korda, meanwhile, reached the quarter-finals of the Grand Slam for the first time.
Sebastian had two tough matches behind him that showed he could fight for the title.
In the third round, Sebastian defeated Daniil Medvedev (7-6, 6-3, 7-6).
Medvedev after the first set still didn’t know what to do Sebastian made mistakes in games on serve.
In the fourth round, Korda outlasted Hubert Hurkacz in a crazy match (3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 1-6, 7-6). In the decisive set, the game was absolutely even, until the tie-break, where Hubert made some offensive mistakes.
Korda has won eight of his last nine matches played in Australia.
