Now into his second full season on the ATP Tour, Sebastian Korda is used to jumping on a plane and heading wherever life as a professional tennis player takes him.
But how sharp is the 2021 Intesa Sanpaolo Next Gen ATP Finals runner-up when it comes to packing for his next trip?
It appears the training sessions never end for Korda, even when he’s sat in the departure lounge. The 2021 Parma finalist revealed all that and more in this edition of ATP’s Next Stop: Travel Like A Pro series.

The 21-year-old, who reached the fourth round on debut at both Roland Garros and Wimbledon, said that he has devised a way of sharpening his return game with the help of just a laptop and a pair of 3-D glasses. He also added that his headphones are essential, especially for spinning his favourite tracks while preparing for his next on-court challenge.
“You’ll not see me without them,” says Korda. “I’m a big Martin Garrix fan. [I like] anything that brings me up. Dubstep, EDM, house…anything to get me going.”
There is a sentimental side to Korda, too. His collection of hotel key cards, reminders of his stops on Tour throughout the year, is constantly growing. The American also collects his airplane tickets.
