TennisSection previews the 2022 Citi Open as Ilya Ivashka takes on Sebastian Korda in the Round of 64 on Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022.
Will Ilya Ivashka get the win? Will Sebastian Korda pull off the upset? This will be a fascinating one, where we have two aggressive, explosive players facing off. Who will triumph and move on to the Round of 32 at the 2022 Citi Open?
Ilya Ivashka had quite a good week in Atlanta, losing to eventual champion Alex de Minaur in the semifinals. He was playing a lot better than he has been for the past few months, and I only expect that trend to continue as he looks to take down Sebastian Korda. This will be a tough encounter, but Ivahska has the stability right now although Korda is really all over the place. Let’s see if he can take down the American to move through to the Round of 32 at the 2022 Citi Open.
Sebastian Korda had a tough loss last week in Atlanta in the 1st round, it’s been a downward trend for him all year, and I don’t necessarily expect him to find that spark here coming up against a very dangerous opponent in Ilya Ivashka. In order to take him down, he’s going to have to play his game, but that means staying in the rallies and not pulling the trigger at every first opportunity. It’ll be quite the battle as he looks to please his home crowd here at the 2022 Citi Open.
Ilya Ivashka and Sebastian Korda have never met before, with this being their first career meeting. With both players at their best, this promises to be a very exciting matchup. Unfortunately for Korda, he can’t really seem to pick up many wins at the moment unless he’s redlining, as for Ivashka, he’s been racking up more consistent results this year and I expect him to show up and take down Korda to move on to the last 32 at the 2022 Citi Open.
