Sebastian Korda making some inroads

Just won a challenger. Could be the all the sudden best American player by the time Biden has unpacked. Seems like he’s got the least shaky game out of all of them. I don’t know why I care about the Americans but I guess it’s fun to predict which one might be transcendent among the large pile of decent players.

I've seen both Leo Borg and Seb Korda play live and there's no comparison. Korda has a nice game, blows doors off anything Leo can bring.

Hopefully won’t resort to PEDs like his drug cheat father.
Well, McEnroe has also admitting to using nandrolone (the same substance found in Korda's test) and he wasn't banned or disciplined. Agassi also failed a drug test and wiggled out of it. There's two sets of rules in tennis: those for the superstars of the sport and those for the second tier guys like Korda.

Don’t know what Biden has to do with this but ok.
Was posting about the Americans and was thinking about the coming Australian Open, which is around Inauguration Day, and how Korda won the junior Australian. You’re right, though. It was needless. Anyway, could be a breakout tournament for K Factor. Just nicknamed him K Factor. Maybe it’ll stick.

Many up and coming next genners I see coming for the throne in the next few years, very excited!

GS champions will never be considered 2nd tier, sorry to tell ya, mate.

I've heard that one of Williams sisters got tested positive as well, and instead of ban she got a TUE after the test, and it was fine.
hopefully it's just rumor, but go figure

When when they've been banned for a year for cheating, yeah, they're second tier, sorry to tell ya, mate.

In general, obviously any slam winner isn't second tier (or anyone ranked #2) but Korda is in a special position being proven a cheat.
