It goes up, that's just a fact of life.
I don't know anything about Coric, and maybe he will grow a few inches and be a top player. I'm just saying if you don't have height you must have exceptional talent to compete with the best for GS in the coming years. 6 foot players won't cut it unless you have all world talent like a Federer.
Actually I made mistake. He is almost tall like Ivanišević (who is 1993). He has good serve, trains in London and has his own coach from there.
