Borna Coric is the best Croatian junior player, he is the youngest player in the top 100 (39), one of the most talented young players in the world so he deserves his own thread.
Tomorrow starts a G1 tournament in Traralgon, Australia.In the first round Borna will play against Stefano Napolitano- #10 on the junior ranking.Napolitano is 1 year and 7 months older than Borna and he is #8 seeded on this tournament.
So, he is 181 cm which is really good with his 15 years and 2 months. So he will probably be around 185-187 what is the best for the tennis. We know more details now. His is back to Zagreb, trains in academy of Vjeran Friscic. He was living in Split and was playing in TK Split for a 2 years or something. But there is one mistake for sure: his favourite surface is clay. They call him "Croatian Coria"
Vjeran Friscic is his new coach. He is one of the most famous croatian trainers. He is something like Pilic's generation.

In the 2nd round Borna will play against Mackenzie Mcdonald from USA who is old just like Napolitano so he is 1 year and 7 months older then Borna.
He is #131 on junior ranking.Last year he lost in first round in Orange Bowl and on Eddie Herr he didn't enter in the main draw.It could be easier match for Borna than in the first round, only thing it may be trouble is that Borna played really long match yesterday (almost 3 hours) while Mcdonald beat Thompson 6-2 6-3 in 1 hour and 22 minutes.
