Maxime Cressy will meet Sebastian Korda in the Round of 16 at the 2022 Tel Aviv Open. The match will be played on Wednesday September 28th, 2022 at approximately 7:40am EST.

Maxime Cressy is seeded fourth here at the 2022 Tel Aviv Open and is ranked 34th on the ATP Tour. The huge serving American is faced with a very tough opponent here in the form of countryman Sebastian Korda, and it is expected to be a battle. Cressy has had a breakthrough season, winning his first ever ATP title in Newport and will be looking to finish the season on a high. As usual, he will be looking towards his massive serve and net rushing game to get him through here, but Korda is a worthy adversary and he will have to be at his best.

Sebastian Korda is unseeded here at the Tel Aviv Open and is ranked 44th in the world, just 10 spots below his Round of 16 opponent Maxime Cressy. Korda has teased us with his talent and upside over the past few seasons but is yet to string consistent results together this season and will be looking to do so here. After a solid win over Cem Ilkel in the First Round, winning 6-4, 6-4 he will take on the monumental task of facing Cressy. Korda is the better player overall but this will all come down to how well he is able to return, and he must hold serve consistently as a break against Cressy likely means that the set is over.

I am expecting a classic here between two very exciting players. One thing is for sure, we will have a tiebreaker in this match. Both men should have little trouble holding serve, and it will come down to who can hold their serve in the breakers. I think it will go the distance, but I’m backing Maxime Cressy here. He’s been more solid this year, and his game is so difficult to play against, especially in tight moments. In a breaker it will be tough for Korda to hold his nerve against someone always rushing the net, and passing a player under pressure is a tall order. Besides, the higher ranked player with underdog odds is too good to pass up. Give me Cressy all day long.
