Sebastian Korda’s father Petr Korda is a former tennis player from the Czech Republic. He was incredibly successful as we won 1998 Australian Open and reached the final of the 1992  French Open. To date, he remains the only man from the Czech Republic to have ever won a Major.

Clearly, Petr had an incredible career, but unfortunately, it came to an end on a sour note. In June 1998, he was caught doping and was to be banned from the sport for 12 months. However, he retired from tennis before the ban came into effect.

Sebastian’s Mother – Regina Rajchrtová

Korda’s mother Regina Rajchrtova was also a tennis player who competed for Czechoslovakia. She represented her country at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, and she reached a career-high ranking of World No. 23. Unfortunately, she didn’t win any WTA titles, but she still had a successful career nonetheless.

Clearly, it should be no surprise that Sebastian is a professional tennis player, as his parents were also very successful in the sport. They have, no doubt, shared their experiences with him, and that is probably why he has seen success so early in his career. Hopefully, he will continue on the same trajectory moving forward and possibly even become a Grand Slam champion.
