Andrey Rublev (4) meets Sebastian Korda in the quarter finals of the 2021 Miami Open on Thursday, April 1st 2021.
Will Sebastian Korda keep up this amazing form as he looks to cause his biggest upset in his career, or will Andrey Rublev stop the youngster in his tracks in this quarter final?
Sebastian Korda got his first top 10 victory on Tuesday, beating the world no.9, Diego Schwartzman, in 3 sets, 6-3/4-6/7-5. Korda is in great form this week and he has shown everyone that he wants to make an even bigger name for himself. Korda has a great playing style, and he has already made it far in tournaments this year, reaching the Final of the Delray Beach Open. Now, Korda is in his first Masters quarter final, and looks to make his way to the semi finals. Will Korda be able to cause the shocking upset against Andrey Rublev?
Andrey Rublev put on a strong performance in the fourth round, beating Marin Cilic in straight sets 6-4/6-4. Rublev is the man of the moment still, and for me, he is the favourite for the title here in Miami. Rublev has cruised through all of his matches here, and he will be looking to cruise through yet another match here against Sebastian Korda. Rublev was once the young star like Korda, but Rublev now has much more experience under his belt, and he will be feeling confident in his ability to win the match and make his way to the semi finals.
This is going to be the first meeting between both players, and we are in for some entertaining tennis. Sebastian Korda will be filled with excitement and confidence coming into this match as he is in his first ATP 1000 quarter final, and he has just won against Diego Schwartzman. However, Andrey Rublev is just on a different planet at the moment. Rublev is just crushing the ball and he will not give Sebastian Korda any chances to get ahead in this match. Korda still needs more experience under his belt to beat someone like Andrey.
