He has won one ATP singles tournament, the 2021 Emilia-Romagna Open. He also won the junior title at the 2018 Australian Open, 20 years after his father Petr Korda won the Australian Open title.

Korda grew up playing competitive junior ice hockey from the age of 3, but decided to switch to tennis at the age of 9 after accompanying his father to the 2009 US Open. At age 11, he won a golf tournament in Prague, in which sister Nelly also competed.

In 2018, Korda made his ATP main draw debut at the New York Open. As a wild card entry, he lost in the first round to Frances Tiafoe in three sets.

In 2020, Korda made his Masters 1000 debut as a qualifier at the warm-up Western & Southern Open tournament prior to the US Open. Korda made his Grand Slam debut as a wildcard at the US Open where he was defeated by Denis Shapovalov. As a qualifier, Korda reached the fourth round at the French Open after beating Andreas Seppi, 21st seed John Isner and fellow qualifier Pedro Martínez. He lost to defending (and eventual) champion Rafael Nadal in straight sets.

In 2021, Korda reached his first ATP final at the Delray Beach Open defeating Cameron Norrie. He lost to Hubert Hurkacz in straight sets.

Korda made another breakthrough run at the Miami Masters, where he reached his first Masters 1000 quarterfinal.

He lost to 4th seed Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals. He also reached a then career-high ranking of ATP world No. 62 on April 12, 2021.

In May, Korda lifted his first career ATP Tour singles title at the Emilia-Romagna Open, an ATP 250 tournament first played in 2021 due to the one-week delay of the 2021 French Open. He beat Marco Cecchinato in the final and did not drop a set throughout the tournament. He also became the first American male tennis player to win on European clay since Sam Querrey in 2010. As a result of this successful run, he reached a new then career-high of No. 50 on May 31, 2021.

In June at the Halle Open, his first ever ATP event on grass, Korda picked up his second top 10 win against 6th seed Roberto Bautista Agut along with beating Kei Nishikori en route to the quarterfinals, where he lost to eventual champion Ugo Humbert.

A week later, in his debut at the Wimbledon Championships, Korda reached the fourth round for the first time in his career after defeating in-form player and 15th seed Alex de Minaur, qualifier Antoine Hoang, and 22nd seed Dan Evans. However, he lost in the fourth round to 25th seed Karen Khachanov in five tight sets with the score in the fifth set being 10–8 after thirteen breaks of serve. Despite the loss, he reached a new career-high ranking of No. 46 on July 12, 2021.

At the Rolex Paris Masters, Korda defeated 13th seed Aslan Karatsev and former world No. 3 Marin Čilić. The win over Karatsev ended the Russian's push to qualify for the season-ending ATP Finals.

In 2022, in his debut at the Australian Open he recorded his first victory by defeating 12th seed Cameron Norrie. He went on to defeat Corentin Moutet in the second round in a tight five set match with a super tiebreak in the fifth set to reach the third round for the first time at this Major. At the 2022 Delray Beach Open, Norrie defeated Korda in the quarterfinals.

Korda entered the 2022 Indian Wells Masters in March. After beating Thanasi Kokkinakis in the first round, Korda faced Rafael Nadal in the second and, despite serving a breadstick in the second set and leading 5–2 in the final set, he lost in a tiebreak. At the 2022 Miami Open, Korda defeated Alejandro Davidovich Fokina and Albert Ramos Viñolas in the first two rounds before being knocked out by Miomir Kecmanović in the third round.

At the 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters he defeated recent Miami Open champion Carlos Alcaraz for the biggest win of his season to reach the third round. He gained revenge for his defeat to Alcaraz at the 2021 Next Generation ATP Finals.
