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?

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.

"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

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 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.

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
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)

Re: Borna Coric

Defeats against Kyrgios in Estoril and Djokovic in Madrid. Djokovic said after the match that Borna reminds him a lot on himself. That they have a similar game and that we'll see him in a lot of finals in the future. I don't know if that's helpful or counter-productive.

What I do know is that Coric improved every aspect of his game (from last season) except his ROS. He wins 20% of his return game which is pretty abysmal. Tsonga has a career average of 21%, Kyrgios has 25% this season. Now think about Kyrgios whose serve will always be better than Coric's. If you add a better ROS, he's practically unplayable for Coric.

Ferrer for instance has 32% career average. Djokovic is on 37% this season.

I used this stat deliberately because to lift it, you need to be good in more segments than just ROS. Like, break point conversion, finishing the point etc. This whole segment of the game will need to be improved DRASTICALLY and as soon as it happens (if it happens) Coric will get into the TOP10 and people won't understand why since his forehand still won't be a big weapon.

Re: Borna Coric

A potential Coric-Kyrgios clash in the QF of Estoril. I think a minor miracle will have to happen for these two to lose their matches in R2. Kyrgios is the better player at the moment, but I think Coric has a chance on clay. He needs to be smart with his tactics and his ROS will be crucial. He can't give up all the initiative on the start of the point because Kyrgios serve+forehand combination might eat him alive. If he manages to make the rallies neutral from the start, he has a decent chance of winning since he's more consistent and he can hit through Kyrgios who isn't a great defender. Murray's tactics vs Kyrgios in RG2015 is something Coric should look up to. Hope this match happens.

Re: Borna Coric

Borna is on Show Court 1 tomorrow in Sydney, so his match will be livestreamed He's the fourth match on that court (2 WTA & 1 ATP match before him). Not sure what kind of shape he'll be in, so I don't really have any expectations of him.
