Paris Masters 2021: Daniil Medvedev vs. Sebastian Korda Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2021 Paris Masters as Daniil Medvedev takes on Sebastian Korda in the Round of 16 on Thursday, November 4th, 2021.

Will Daniil Medvedev get the win? Will Sebastian Korda pull off the upset? This will be an interesting one, where we arguably the best player in the world at the moment taking on a next-gen star. Who will move on to the quarterfinals at the 2021 Paris Masters?

Daniil Medvedev has been playing incredible tennis, lifting the US Open title this year to win his first grand slam and take down world No. 1 Novak Djokovic. He is arguably the best player in the world at the moment, hardly losing matches. He has a tricky one ahead of him in Sebastian Korda, who has been playing some good stuff. In order to get past him, he will just have to focus on what he did today, playing consistent balls, redirecting them from side to side. Korda is not the best mover, and if Medvedev can capitalize on that and just move him around the court, I fully expect him to be able to get the win and book his spot in the quarterfinals at the 2021 Paris Masters.

Sebastian Korda has been playing some good tennis, just edging out Aslan Karatsev in his first match and following it up with a good win over Cilic. Both players have been in good form recently, so to get those two wins was a great effort. He has a much tougher match ahead of him though taking on world No. 2 in Daniil Medvedev. Medvedev is solid in every area you could think of, and he has the perfect game to defeat Korda. His defense and movement are impeccable, and if he is able to simply get every ball back as he is so often able to do, as well as redirect the ball as well as he did against Ivashka, then I expect him to get the win in straights and move on to the last eight at the 2021 Paris Masters.

Daniil Medvedev and Sebastian Korda have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. It’s a fascinating matchup, with Korda having pure pace and Medvedev being able to absorb that pace brilliantly to play his own very special game. The serve will also play a role here, if both players serve at their normal capacity, Medvedev has a decisive edge in that department as well. He serves much better, but his return is also much better than Korda’s, so if he’s able to neutralize his serve, the match result is practically etched in stone. Let’s see if Medvedev can get the win and move on to the quarterfinals as the 2021 Paris Masters.
