Nice to see that. Borna has showed he can play and beat players of that caliber: Krstin, Coppejans, Gao. Players who are around #30 and who are more than 2 years older.
I overrated Coopejans, it's obvious Borna can beat him. It's mistake to say "he can't beat this guy" like I did when acctualy we don't know his limits. You can't know for such young and up coming guy.
However, great end of the year and great season for him.
On the Orange Bowl site they wrote that Borna is clay specialist, they wrote that in one article about him in Slobodna Dalmacija 3 year ago too (http://www.slobodnadalmacija.hr/Teni...2/Default.aspx
) but he is actually as same good on all surfaces (maybe a little bit better on clay) just like all modern players. I am happy we finally have a player of a biggest talent who's strenght is from back line.
I look forward to if itf will put information about his heigh after this tournament, but like I said he is around 182 cm.
Interesting is that Borna on next monday will have 385 points while Quinzi had 131.5 points when he was 15 y, 1 m old. Quinzi gained 385 points when he was 15 y, 5 m, 17 d old. And that Quinzi was higher and stronger at that time, was in Nick Bolletieri's academy and whole tennis world says "he is new big thing, really something special", such a big hype. But Borna owned him in U-14. They played few times and Borna always beat him easily.
He will be better ranked on new list than Milojevic was one year ago, too. And he is younger half year than Milojevic was.
Beside that, Quinzi and Milojevic were playing in Central America and Asia in easy competition while Borna was playing in the hardiest possible (Europe and these tournaments).
Sorry guys I made some parallels beetween them but it's good to know where he is to best young juniors. So he is actually the best among of them!
Good luck in the new year!!!
