You are hoping too much. I mean, off-course he could win this tournament but you can't expect from 16 old kid that he will win everything and everywhere. On the end of the story, I think he lost because he got tired. And he lost to good player. He is great potential.

Re: Borna Coric

Borna's ranking jumped up 129 spots this week, from 536 to 407

And next week he'll go up into the mid 300s.

This will make it much easier for Borna to get into the Q draw of Challengers and even into the MD of some of the weak ones. It shows that a little vulturing is a smart strategy, as a quick way of boosting one's ranking.

Re: Borna Coric

I saw a part of his interview today, among other things he said he's happy with his season, also mentioned that his goal is to be able to play some GS qualies next year. The interviewer said maybe we'll see him in Wimbledon, so he said 'yeah, hopefully' but I think he'd really like to be able to play at RG if not even AO (which is possible with a few more good results in the upcoming weeks, but unlikely of course).
He said the match with Murray was very stressful, but also a huge experience. When asked about the situation on tour, and if someone else besides Djokovic and Nadal could challenge for the #1 spot, he answered "Borna Coric"


"a kad me opet gore vrati zahvalit' ću Mu prvo
što nam je dao komad zemlje što je za sebe sačuv'o"
