The second meeting between Sebastian Korda and Karen Khachanov was a lot more straightforward than the first.

At Wimbledon this summer, there were a ridiculous 13 breaks of serve in a wild fifth set between the two players — a marathon contest finally won by Khachanov. Their rematch required only two sets, as Korda cruised 6-3, 6-4 during first-round action at the Western & Southern Open on Monday.

Korda, ranked No 52, will next play the winner of a match between Matteo Berrettini and Frances Tiafoe.
