Coric smoked Federer. Both off the serve and the ground really.

A trashing in the end, like Halle. Federer escaped going down a double break in the second in two seperate service games.

Coric was stunningly complete. Never rushed, always within himself. 9/10 performance. Federer wasn't as good as he was in the Halle final.


Coric lost 8 points on serve :haha: That's 8 points in 10 service games. He was throwing down big (not sure what mph average) making like 80% of them iirc.

Federer was too conservative, and really getting outplayed in any kind of rally, even coming to the net.

A part of me wanted to see The King destroy this washed up old man in the final but seeing sexy Borna take him down is just as amazing in my books. :hearts: Love this final!

Coric was simply phenomenal.
Powerful serve, powerful backhand, attacking all over the court. He gave Federer absolutely no chances on serve. Finally, he is complete top player.
Also, Coric has become the first player who outplayed Wawrinka, Del Potro and Federer on one tournament in three years.

Federer didn’t even make it to deuce on coric‘s serve. That basically says everything. He’s just terrible right now. And he fucking better play bercy this time

Yeah, Federer wasn't at his best, and Coric was GOOD today. Coric continues to make progress.

The match had a 2 & 2 scoreline feel instead of 4 & 4.Serverer's serve made it all the more respectable but still a shutout nonetheless.


Congrats to Coric in making a Masters Series final and early congrats to Djokovic when he wins another title and adds 400 more points to his YE points.

Can't wait ;)

Great match by Coric. Serve, ROS and forehand, all his biggest weaknesses at one point, looked great today.

Love to see a Masters final between Coric and Djokovic.

Please don't be ridiculous, in Halle Coric was mega-clutch and a little bit lucky on big points. Here he just completely outplayed Fed. I was mad back then, but today I'just very impressed by Borna. Good luck to him in the final, unfortunately I can't see how he could beat Novak. It should be a good match though. :smile2:

Finally, someone beats Fed before he gets to the final. It's sad it takes until SF to beat him when folks like Kei should be beating him. No way this form of Fed should be in a M1000 final...didn't want to see another Cincy final beatdown.

Grats to Borna and gl tomorrow. Would be interesting to see him add another M1000 title for the #NextGens.

Good tank Roger. No need to bust your ass in the semis knowing you got no chance in the Final. Next time don't make it so obvious. Giving away the first game of the set?

Roger gonna need to go down to the 250 level if he wants 100 titles.

Weasel of a match by Federer, no BPs, and outplayed by Coric. Beating Kei only to lose twice to Coric straight :facepalm:

Coric played a very solid match pinning Federer back, and served extremely well, winning more pts outright than Federer in that department. But Federer didn't really answer very well, and should have lost even easier perhaps.
