Nelly Korda: "My brother Sebastian, the best"

Asked on the sidelines of the Tournament of Champions, about the statements of his tennis brother qualified for the quarter-finals of the Australian Open, Nelly Korda explained that Sebastian was the best of the family contrary to what he said.

The 3 children of Petr Korda, himself a former winner of the Australian Tennis Open in 2008 shine with all the lights on the women's golf circuit with Nelly and Jessica and on the tennis courts through “ Sebi” the latest addition to this family of champions!

Aged 22, the younger brother of Nelly and Jessica qualified for the quarter-finals of the Australian Open on Sunday by dismissing the Pole Hubert Hurkacz. The day before he had released the ephemeral Russian world number 1 Daniil Medvedev and in his interview Sebastian had declared that he was the “worst” athlete in the family and praising his two older sisters who have figured for many years.

among the best players in the world on the LPGA Tour! An opinion that does not share at all Nelly who considers “Sebi” as the best of the family. It is even excellent on a golf course according to the world number 2.

“What he says is nonsense! It’s “shit” Excuse my French!” comments Nelly. "Honestly, he's the best. His hand-eye coordination is amazing. His swing…I'm jealous of his swing. What is crazy is that he plays left-handed when he is right-handed in life.

He played left-handed hockey too. He was quite talented, very strong on ice skates!” After her second round at the Tournament of Champions, Nelly Korda revealed that she woke up early even before her alarm clock went off to watch her little brother's match.

“Yeah, I saw him win over breakfast, so that was cool,” said the world number 2. “To be honest, he is investing a lot to achieve this result. He has an incredible team around him and it's really cool and special to see him do what he does.

I hope he can continue on this streak and I couldn't be happier." Note that in this first tournament of the LPGA season, it is a former tennis player Mardy Fish who is at the top of the ranking of the celebrity tournament! We remember that he had made an appearance on the PGA Tour in 2022.
