Why Bet on Karen Khachanov?

After nearly being taken to the limit in the third round, Karen Khachanov had a more composed showing in the fourth round of the 2023 Australian Open, handing Japan’s Yoshihito Niskioka a quick straight-sets route.

Khachanov didn’t cede a single game through the first two sets against Nishioka and sealed the deal with a tense final set that went to four tiebreakers. The 26-year-old Russian has now made back-to-back appearances in a Grand Slam quarterfinal, recently reaching the semifinal of the US Open last September.

Can Khachanov make it to back-to-back Grand Slam semis with a win on Monday? He certainly made quick work of his previous opponent and should be well-rested for the next round. It’s been over a decade since Khachanov won a prestigious title, and yet he’s playing some of his best tennis Down Under to prove that he’s now a perennial threat in major tournaments.

Why Bet on Sebastian Korda?

A younger tennis prodigy who’s also on the rise is Sebastian Korda, who completed the upset of 10th-seeded Hubert Hurkacz in a grueling five-set fourth-round showdown this past weekend. The second-generational talent born of former tennis greats has finally popped his Grand Slam cherry and carries a ton of momentum heading into the quarters.

That’s now back-to-back wins over top-10 elite for Korda, with World No. 10 Hurkacz being the latest casualty following the fall of World No. 8 Daniil Medvedev in the third round. Going back to his impressive final-round showing in Adelaide a couple of weeks ago, the son of Petr Korda also took down other ATP Tour heavyweights Andy Murray, Roberto Bautista Agut, and Jannik Sinner before bowing out to Novak Djokovic in the final round.

Simply put, Korda is putting on a clinic on the courts of Melbourne as if he’s a grizzled veteran. To top it all off, he’s also won the last two out of three career head-to-head matches against Khachanov and both were won in straight sets to boot.

Karen Khachanov vs. Sebastian Korda Expert Betting Prediction

Many are still speculative about Korda’s recent surge. However, he has a good track record against Khachanov and has taken down bigger beasts throughout his trek in Australia thus far. As such, we see this contest going to Korda in no more than four sets with Khachanov putting up enough of a valiant fight to make matters interesting.
