Cordae was alongside Naomi at the 2020 US Open, though his attendance wasn't originally planned, Naomi recalled to GQ earlier this year. She explained that typically her father is the person who accompanies her to all her tennis tournaments because "he's sort of like the guy that keeps me calm." However, because of COVID-19, her father was unable to make the journey, so Cordae stepped in. "During the whole New York thing and with everything that was going on, I started to feel really depressed. Sometimes I would call Cordae, and maybe in some of the calls I would cry," Naomi said. "And he flew out, even though he was really busy. I really appreciated that." Of course, how could anyone forget Cordae's spirited reaction when he saw Naomi clinch the championship title?
