So far at SW19 the world No.50 has dispatched No.15 seed Alex de Minaur in four sets, prior to his commanding triumph over Evans, where Korda was competing in one of the most prestigious arenas in sport.
“I hear stories all the time about how incredible the Centre Court is, how incredible the fans are. To finally get to experience that today, it was awesome. Just crazy,” said Korda, somehow taking it all in his stride.
“I kind of just blocked out there today, and played some really good tennis. Stayed calm. I was hoping with my match kit, it was white and red. I was hoping maybe I'd get some fans with that for England. Yeah, they were cheering hard for Dan. But it was just awesome to play in front of them.
“Just to get the opportunity to play there before my 21st birthday is pretty special. Yeah, just felt incredibly comfortable. It was perfect.”
