Miami Open 2022: Sebastian Korda vs. Alejandro Davidovich Fokina Tennis Pick and Prediction

TennisSection previews the 2022 Miami Open as Sebastian Korda takes on Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the first round on Thursday, March 24th, 2022.

Sebastian Korda will be aiming to write off that demoralizing defeat to Rafael Nadal at Indian Wells. Matches come thick and fast in March, and Korda cannot rest on his laurels as he heads to the Miami Open to face the dangerous Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. 

They always say you make your own luck in tennis. But Sebastian Korda’s defeat to Rafael Nadal illustrated that his mental fortitude is still a work in progress. Korda had the match on his racket when he led his childhood hero Nadal 5-2 in the third set of their seesaw second-round match at Indian Wells. And even with the insurance of a double break, Korda couldn’t finish off the great Spaniard who responded excellently like the legendary champion he is. While the young American hasn’t matched the pre-season expectation thus far, a loss to Nadal is unlikely to affect his confidence one bit. Can he bounce back at the Miami Open when he takes on Alejandro Davidovich Fokina?

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina also succumbed to a second round defeat at the Indian Wells tennis garden against Denis Shapovalov. Davidovich Fokina, like Sebastian Korda, also lost from a position of complete dominance against the Canadian lefty. So many similarities to compare from these two players, but I don’t think that is likely to have a bearing on the outcome of their first-round match at the Miami Open. The World No. 45 is 4-7 for the season and is set for his main draw debut at the event. 

Sebastian Korda and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina have not played each other on the ATP Tour. Wednesday’s match at the Miami Open will be their first official meeting. Davidovich Fokina is a player with a good combination of shots, but is very inconsistent and most of the times overcomplicate matters. Backing the American on home turf might be the only viable option in this match.
