‘Complete player’ Sebastian Korda backed to win a Grand Slam in the near future by Martina Navratilova
It is only a matter of time before Sebastian Korda wins a Grand Slam with Martina Navratilova admitting that she is impressed by the American.
The 21-year-old, who won the 2018 Australian Open Boys’ title, has enjoyed a breakthrough season on the ATP Tour, winning his first title at the Emilia-Romagna Open in May before reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon.
Korda, who is set to break into the ATP top 40 for the first time next week, hails from a sporting family as his father Petr won the 1998 Australian Open while his sisters Nelly and Jessica are both LPGA Tour-title winners.
But which major? 🤔

Asked by Tennis Channel if Korda is a future major champion, Navratilova replied: “[Just] a matter of time. Seb Korda, a complete player, he keeps his head about him. First time I saw him play I’m like ‘he’s already been here’ you know, in his previous life.
“I mean he’s been coached so well by his parents. He’s got such a great game, a great outlook.
“I think, if not next year, I would say 2023 would be a year for him.”
