Re: Borna Coric

A little bit surprised that Borna never had Nice (or Geneva) on his schedule to attempt to defend his semifinal points from last year. But they're probably thinking of the bigger picture I suppose with the French Open. What is more surprising though is he's only playing one grass tournament (Halle ATP500) before Wimbledon. I know at the moment he can only gain points at ATP250s by reaching the semifinals or better (because 45 points or less at those tournaments will go into his non countables right now ), but getting competitive matches on the surface he is quite uncomfortable on might have been a good idea?

Btw if Borna plays Davis Cup, could he be missing Umag?
As it's:
July 15-17 Davis Cup QFs at Portland USA (west coast), hardcourts
July 18-24 Umag, clay
July 25-31 Canada Masters (Toronto), hardcourt
During the July 18-24 week there is a ATP500 in Washington DC (hardcourt) he could choose to play instead of Umag

Favourite players:
T.Berdych (CZE) - B.Coric (CRO) - C.Ruud (NOR) - S.Tsitsipas (GRE) - D.Thiem (AUT) - M.Fucsovics (HUN) - C.Ugo (ARG) - T.Paul (USA) - D.Masur (GER)

Borna could have "vultured" some points before RG that's for sure. He concentrated on RG and reached R3 which is respectable. You said it yourself, he has a problem with the non countables right now.

Considering grass, I think he finally "figured it out" in Wimbledon. Until that, he was atrocious on the surface. Still, we won't see him gaining a lot of points there this season. I guess he's focusing on traning at the moment, more than matches. Hope he starts training his ROS, because it hasn't improved since he turned pro.

Borna will definitely play for Croatia. Haven't thought about how it affects Umag.

But it makes more sense that he goes to Washington and plays a traditionally weak ATP500 on the surface that suits him more (fast hard > clay, imo!) Even though I was looking forward to watching him in Umag.

However, we have to consider that his manager is also the organizer of ATP Umag. (and he is trying to turn it into a HC event aswell)

It's all PR... Someone started talking about Coric and now you guys believe he's so wonderful kid, his highest ranking - 84, Dzumhur highest ranking - 87. The same actually. Difference? Coric made it via wildcards - to Basel for example, Dzumhur had to reach it by hard work, on qualies, challengers.

Re: Borna Coric

Borna fired another coach.

First time that I actually get it. Pretty bad season. Played his best tennis in the first tournament of the season and never got to that level again which is very disappointing.

Re: Borna Coric

Maclagan always struck me as a terrible appointment and I am glad that he has gone but I do worry how often Borna fires his coaches.

Re: Borna Coric

Borna has a new coach, Ivica Ančić

"Dear all, I would like to inform you that Ivica Ancic will be my new coach. I am happy to start the relationship with a coach who helped his brother Mario on the way to Top 10."

Re: Borna Coric

Lo?a vijest uo?i finala Davisova kupa: ?ori? ide na operaciju koljena! - Ve?ernji.hr

Unfortunately, Borna needs surgery to resolve his right knee problems. He's going under the knife next week. That's the end of this season for him. Hoping for a speedy recovery.

Re: Borna Coric

I've got some good news and better news.

Borna is training for the DC final and he broke up with his (certainly not a gold digger, plastic) girlfriend. Even though he already tatooed the date they met and her birthday on his body?
