SPOILER ALERT: Australian Open results below!
His father’s accomplishments on the tennis court aside, American Junior Sebastian Korda (UTR 14.39) is making a name for himself in Melbourne this week. He has battled his way through a very tough draw to reach the Junior Boys Final which will be played tonight.
Sebastian will be graduating high school this year and is a Blue Chip Recruit – number 3 in his recruiting class, to be exact – according to TennisRecruiting.net. He is also ranked 7 in the world in the ITF Junior rankings. Though he has not officially turned pro, I suspect it’s on the horizon since he also hasn’t committed to any college program to date.

Here’s the rundown for Americans from Day 12:
Sebastian Korda (7) d. Marco Miladinovic (2) 7-5 5-7 6-4
