Carlos Alcaraz vs Sebastian Korda: 2024 Roland Garros - Preview & Prediction

by Zachary Wimer

Carlos Alcaraz will face a stern test against Sebastian Korda in the third round of the 2024 Roland Garros.

Alcaraz has looked good so far at Roland Garros, but none of the players he faced were on or close to Korda's level. The American can play some amazing tennis, especially when everything in his game is clicking, so this will be far from an easy match for the Spaniard.

An interesting factor will be how Alcaraz approaches the forehand in this meeting because he won't be able to go easy on it. Korda is capable of hitting winners from both sides, so if the former world no. 1 doesn't approach it seriously enough, he might find himself in a lot of trouble.

After all, the American beat Alcaraz on clay in the past, and he can certainly do it again, especially as the Spaniard is still searching for his game in Paris.


They have played a few times so far, and Korda, for the most part, put up a decent fight but couldn't record many wins. Alcaraz leads the H2H 3-1 so far, and he won the most recent match between them, though it was on grass.

They played two times on clay, and each player has one win on the red dirt. Korda's win over Alcaraz happened in 2022, but the Spaniard was a bit fatigued in that match. Back then, he just came to Monte Carlo from Miami, so there were reasons for a bad performance.

Carlos Alcaraz Sebastian Korda
3 H2H 1
3 Rank 28
21 Age 23
20-5 2024 W/L 15-12
175-48 Career W/L 109-72


Overall, Alcaraz is the better player and more stable from the baseline, which is where the matchup will be decided. He's not at his best yet, so Korda will have a chance, provided that he actually plays some of his best tennis.

Prediction: Carlos Alcaraz to win in four sets.
