Borna won 6:1, 6:1. Next one is Coppejans. They already played this week in doubles. His team lost. But he were playing with average player vs one of the best junior this days and Coppejans.

With today's win he will be #64, that's mean he will be seed at AO if things stay like this (he would be #32 seed). That's really something, to be a seed on GS with only 15.
If he wins next match he will be #54.

^ Wow, surprisingly easy

Coppejans will be tough. Good luck!

If he wins he would also become the highest-ranked player born after 1995.

Absolutely! Pretty amazing, actually.

In tennis terms at least, Croatia has a lot to look forward to. Vekic is the highest-ranked woman born after 1995 while Coric is the second-highest ranked junior born after 1995.

It's gonna be more than enough for Borna to enter in the main draw of AO without playing qualies.We got to keep in mind the fact that all players born in 1993 will be erased from junior ranking after 1 st of January.

And Ana Konjuh. They are croatian gold.

I think Lea Boskovic (born in 1999) will be that rang or close.

But on junior list there are that two: Coric and Vekic.

Borna lost today but it's nothing to be ashamed of. He kept it very close (won the same number of games: 75 26 64) against a player ranked #35, who is more than two and a half years older. To me that's a very good performance.

Congratulations to Borna on a great year and good luck to him in 2012!

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!!!

Nicely said!

I think that Borna earned a thread of his own.It would be nice to start a new season with Borna's thread after all he is our best junior and one of the best in the world.
