Korda News


No, not Petr, you goof.

His son, Sebi!

Young Sebastian Korda is getting after it, boys. And this time, he's not taking "no" for an answer.

While the 18-year-old Yankee is officially the ATP World No. 520, he is the No. 2 in the ITF junior rankings. Plenty of room to grow. And time to do it. The pedigreed righty stands 6'4, and carries an enormous weight of expectation.

Sebi's idols growing up were his father and Radek Štěpánek. If he wasn't a tennis player, he would have liked to have been a hockey player or golfer. He was last seen in action at the Atlantic Tire Championships on the Challenger Tour where he took an L in the Round of 32 to some Belgian.

Definitely keep an eye on Korda, 520 ranking is lower than I'd like to see at his age.

So the ranking seems to have improved quite considerably in the last 2 years ;) Currently at #88, is young SebGoat on his way to become top 3 ranked US player in 2021? Consistency, winning mentality and some easy power of both wings. Is it Korda time, again??

Definitely the most promising American. No weird looking strokes. No outward signs of mental instability. Smooth and solid like a metaphor.

And maybe Fritz? I don't really follow US tennis much but this kid seemed legit, his groundies looked good. Not sure about how mentally tough he is, though..
