🇭🇷🏆 Borna Ćorić is finally a Masters 1000 champion!!!
The 25 year-old from Zagreb returned from right shoulder surgery the past year to win the Cincinnati Masters this week. He defeated five top-15 players on his way to the title: Nadal, Bautista Agut, Auger-Aliassime, Norrie, Tsitsipas. Going into the US Open next month in New York, Ćorić will now move back into the top 30 of the ATP Men’s rankings.
The problem is that Grand Slams are played best of 5 sets. Not sure if Borna is fit enough yet ? It will depend also on the draw, but lets hope that he can make an impact at the event.
Yeah but he pretty much clean swept the Masters tournament (and it was against multiple top-10 ranked players).
He wins this US Open with ease. 😉
I hope he wins it, but I have watched Borna struggle the last six months and than last week he wins Masters 1000. As I said this is best of 5 sets and I cannot see him winning it after missing a whole year with injury.
Crvena Zvezda gives up 2 ridiculously bad goals to knock them out of the champions league. haha
Don’t like watching Serbian teams, unless they are losing. Switched over just before half time and Red Star were leading 1 – 0. Thought that’s it, they will qualify. Crossed over again in the 87 min to see what the score is and they were leading 2 – 1 and then saw the own goal in the 90 min for
2 – 2. The English Referee then played 7 minutes stoppage time and Red Star almost scored.
Glad to see them lose, especially because of their goalkeeper who keeps on saying the he was born in Knin, Srpska Dalmacija. What are d…head.
According to the TV commentator he saved a penalty just before HT, only to concede a soft goal from 30 yards out, 20 seconds later.
So borna might have a shot
What are the betting odds on him right now?
Better than the odds for Hajduk 😉
I was watching “dnevnik” yesterday and they calculated the chance of Hajduk progressing at just over 1%.
Ladbrokes have Coric at 26 to 1.
Borna was so strong and ahit the ball deep and looked unbeatable and he was. A long road for him to come back from injury and so much strength to him. Who knows about New York . That’s another level with 3 out 5 set but he may still have the magic.
Hey he keeps it up maybe a US open title
Would be amazing
Three different cro men with a grand slam
Shame Ljubičić never won one when he was at his peak. Dude was awesome for us back in 2005.
Great effort by Borna, considering that he was out for year with a shoulder injury.
Lets hope that he can keep up the good form for the US Open.
Aaah. Wonderful x
Great work, i think he only dropped one set all tourney and that was to Nadal. Most of the matches he actually schooled his opponent, really good to see!
He really looked great all week! That backhand flip lob was out of this world today!
