Seventh seed Sebastian Korda will take on Luca Nardi in the second round of the Libema Open on Thursday (June 13).

Korda has made a modest start to the season by amassing 16 wins from 29 matches, including a semifinal appearance in the Adelaide International. He also reached the third round of the Italian Open and French Open, where Carlos Alcaraz defeated him in straight sets.

The American started his campaign in Rosmalen (Netherlands) with a solid win against Tristan Schoolkate. He outclassed the Australian 6-4, 7-6(4) in one hour and 19 minutes. Korda will be eager to make a significant impact in the Libema Open.

Luca Nardi, meanwhile, has chalked up a title-winning run in the ATP Naples Challenger and a fourth-round appearance in the BNP Paribas Open. He scored the biggest victory of his career in Indian Wells by outsmarting former World No.1 Novak Djokovic in the third round.

The Italian entered Rosmalen on the back of a first-round exit in Paris. He began his campaign with a splendid 7-5, 7-5 win against David Goffin and will be determined to make a deep run.

Sebastian Korda has yet to register a strong result on tour. The American has shown glimpses of his top potential but hasn't been able to edge past higher-ranked opponents in important matches. He will be keen to turn the tides in his favour in the grasscourt swing.

Nardi, meanwhile, made a name for himself on the men's tour with a brilliant win against Novak Djokovic this year. Critics have high expectations from the youngster who has been putting in the hard yards to find his range. He will need to play out of his skin to counter Korda's all-around game and accurate groundstrokes off both wings.

Ultimately, the player who recovers well and makes a positive start will have the upper hand in this bout. Considering their results on tour, Nardi has a decent chance to cause an upset in this second round. However, it is most likely that Korda passes this tricky challenge and secures a third-round berth in Rosmalen.

Pick: Sebastian Korda to win in three sets.
