Gijon Open QF: Andy Murray vs Sebastian Korda

Quote

Andy now plays 22 year old American Sebastian Korda who defeated the No. 3 seed Roberto Bautista Agut 5-7, 6-4,  6-4.   Currently ranked No. 47, Korda's career-high ranking of No. 30 was achieved on 2 May.  He has won one ATP singles tournament, the 2021 Emilia-Romagna Open.  He also won the junior title at the 2018 Australian Open, 20 years after his father Petr Korda won the Australian Open title.  Korda, who is coached by his father, has long been considered one of the top emerging talents on the Tour, but despite the success of his junior days, has largely failed to live up to expectations.  His 2022 season too has been a fairly disappointing one with inconsistent results, having a win/loss ratio for the year so far of 27-19.  He is though known for his heavy hitting and variety of shots.

At the end of the Cachin match Andy said he hoped that RBA and Korda's match would be a very long oneā€”and it was pretty long, went to three sets, so hopefully Korda won't be fresh as a daisy. But he is a big hitter and of course young and spry. However, while he can sometimes look brillliant, he can definitely have somewhat inexplicably bad days on court too. I think Andy will need to be at his wiliest.

The match before this one has just gone to a third after 90 minutes on court, so probably around 6:15 for this one.

Looking like nearer 7:00 now as the drama continues in the previous match.


16-16 now in the 3rd set tiebreak.  Carreno Busta has had 9 MPs but couldn't take them.  Epic stuff this!

And Arthur Rinderknech finally goes through 18-16!  He'll play the winner of this match in the semis.

Again, an early break. And that against a big server.  These long rallies may not help.
