Golf, tennis bring competing Kordas together

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. – Nelly Korda calls her big sister, Jessica, her best friend.

She says her younger brother, Sebastian, is practically her shadow when they’re together.

Nelly’s relishing not just getting into early contention at the ANA Inspiration, but having her entire family together this week at Mission Hills Country Club.

While Nelly, 18, and Jessica, 24, are teeing it up together in the year’s first major championship, Sebastian, 16, is also in the desert playing tennis at the prestigious Easter Bowl USTA Junior National Spring Championship.

Parents Petr Korda, the 1998 Australian Open tennis champ, and Regina Rajchrtova, a world-class tennis player in her prime, are also here in what’s a rare treat with as much as they all travel.

“It’s really nice being together, because we don’t get that too often,” Nelly said.

Nelly posted a 3-under-par 69 Friday, concluding her suspended first round. She was just two shots off the lead at the completion of the opening round. Jessica started with a 74. Sebastian’s competing at Indian Wells.

They’re all staying together at a friend’s home at Mission Hills.

“It’s awesome, but it’s really hectic,” Nelly said.

Nelly said Sebastian is making the most of the time together.

“Whenever I’m home, he’s in my room,” Nelly said. “Just chillin’ and hanging out, talking about our tournaments and catching up.”
