In the 2023 AO, he met only two potent rivals. In the Round of 32, Karen Khachanov defeated Frances Tiafoe (6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6). Despite the result, Tiafoe was close to defeating his rival.

Prediction and betting tips
Sebastian Korda eliminated the seventh-seeded player Daniil Medvedev in Round 3. Also, he defeated Huber Hurkacz in the most recent game. He has won two out of three H2H fixtures against Karen Khachanov with all to nil and finished the 2022 season perfectly with two finals in the last two tournaments.
Karen Khachanov started the 2023 season well. He has won seven of the last nine matches, but he has met only two rivals from the top 30 ATP and lost one of these fixtures. He is in good condition, but I believe that Sevastian Korda will be a bit stronger this time because his recent play was a bit better.
Betting prediction: Sebastian Korda to win
Odds: 1.80 (-125 American; 4/5 Fractions)
