Being the son of a great tennis player always comes with its own set of pressures. While it might be easier to climb the ladder in the initial stages, the player has to contend with constant comparisons with their old man almost throughout their whole careers. The ones who can break that chain and make a big name for themselves, despite all the pressures of unfair expectations, are indeed special. One such player, who is seemingly special, is Petr Korda’s son Sebastian Korda. Sebastian is a professional tennis player from the United States. Korda reached his career-high ATP singles ranking of No. 38 on October 18, 2021. He has only won one ATP singles event, the Emilia-Romagna Open in 2021. At the 2018 Australian Open.
At the Delray Beach Open, Korda made his first ATP final. Hubert Hurkacz defeated him in straight sets, 3–6, 3–6. Korda made another breakthrough run at the Miami Masters, reaching the quarterfinals for the first time in his Masters 1000 career. He defeated Fabio Fognini, the 10th seed, in three sets, Aslan Karatsev, the 17th seed, in straight sets, and Diego Schwartzman, the 10th seed, in three sets. In the quarterfinals, he was defeated by Andrey Rublev, the fourth seed. On April 12, 2021, he also achieved a career-high ranking of ATP World No. 62.
Korda won his first career ATP Tour singles title at the Emilia-Romagna Open in May, an ATP 250 tournament that was first held in 2021 due to the French Open’s one-week postponement. He won the tournament without dropping a set, defeating Marco Cecchinato in the final. Since Sam Querrey in 2010, he became the first American male tennis player to win on European clay. As a result of this strong run, he climbed to a new career high of No. 50 on May 31, 2021.
Korda’s net worth has been estimated to be approximately USD 2 million.
