Fifth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov will face home favorite Sebastian Korda in the third round of the 2022 Citi Open on Thursday.

After a bye in the first round, Dimitrov faced Adrian Mannarino and took a 5-0 lead in no time to start the game. After a hold of his opponent’s serve, the Bulgarian served out the set to decide it.

The duo was even for most of the second set. Mannarino nabbed the crucial break in game eight of the set, after which he easily leveled the set to take the match to a decisive point.

The Frenchman led 3-1 in the third set, but Dimitrov upped his game and soon equalized. Mannarino served to stay in the game at 6-5, but the pressure proved too much for him. Dimitrov broke his opponent’s serve for the last time and won 6-1, 3-6, 7-5.

Sebastian Korda defeated Ilya Ivashka, who reached the semifinals of the Atlanta Open last week, in the first round. In the second round, he faced off against 12th seed Sebastian Baez.

Korda broke his opponent’s serve twice as he took a 5-0 lead in the opener. Baez then saved a set point to finally get on board, but his opponent served out the set in the following game.

Korda secured a break on serve to take a 4-3 lead in the second set. Baez had a few break points in the next game to get back to serve but couldn’t convert either of them.

The 22-year-old finished the game quickly and won the game 6-1, 6-4. Korda has won straight matches for the first time since reaching the third round of the French Open a few months ago.

After winning the first set comfortably, Dimitrov was on the backfoot until the end of his bout in the second round. He has pulled off an escape act but needs to step up his game in the future.

Korda, on the other hand, defeated Ivashka in straight sets in the first round and even more convincingly won against Baez in the second round.

Dimitrov threw in seven double faults in the second round and must clean up his act. His movement also looked pretty subpar, but the hot conditions in DC took their toll on many players.

Korda served and returned pretty well in the second round and didn’t even get broken. He dictated what was happening and was in control of the game from start to finish. If he continues like this, the Bulgarian will have a hard time getting past him.

Dimitrov’s game is versatile enough to deal with whatever his opponent throws at him. Both players have succumbed to their nerves on numerous occasions in the past and this could once again prove to be their downfall.

Korda has looked pretty impressive this week and based on his performances so far, he’s likely to come out on top against Dimitrov as well.

Choose: Sebastian Korda wins in straight sets.
