The Final of the 2021 Delray Beach Open is finally here as Hubert Hurkacz meets Sebastian Korda on Wednesday, January 13th 2021. Will Hurkacz be able to win his second ATP Tour title, or will Sebastian Korda, who is making his first Final appearance on the ATP Tour, win his first title?
Hubert Hurkacz has been very dominant here at the 2021 Delray Beach Open, winning all of his matches in straight sets, including a 7-6/6-4 victory against Christian Harrison in the semifinals. Hurkacz won his first ATP Tour title last year on a hard-court and he will be very motivated to win another title, and make his mark on the 2021 ATP Tour season right from the start. Will Hurkacz be able to keep up with the young Sebastian Korda who looks to have all the momentum behind him and looks to make have his breakthrough season this year?
Sebastian Korda has been incredible here at the 2021 Delray Beach Open, coming through all of his matches where he was either the underdog, or slight underdog. Korda showed us late last year that he is a future star to look out for, and he has already begun to do his part in establishing itself as a superstar on the ATP Tour. Korda beat the likes of Tommy Paul, John Isner, and Cameron Norrie to reach the final here and for a 20 year-old this has been incredibly impressive. Will Korda be able to win his first title on home-soil?
This is going to be the first meeting between both players, and it is going to be an incredibly tight and exciting final to watch. Hurkacz can be considered the favourite on paper, due to his increased experience and the fact he has already won a title in his career. However, Sebastian Korda has been absolutely incredible here and has beaten stronger players than Hurkacz has done. I think that Korda is not a player intimidated by the moment, and he will give it his all when the time comes. I think Korda wins his first title here in Delray Beach.
