Wednesday, July 22, 2009

BEDMINSTER, N.J. – Jessica Korda played her first match play tournament since the European Team Championship two years ago. Did her father, famed tennis player Petr, offer any advice on her return to head-to-head competition?

“No,” Korda said. “He just told me to rip the other person’s head off.”

Korda beat Seshia-Lei Telles, 7 and 6, in Round 1.

Way to listen to, Dad.
