21 year-old Zagreb native Borna Ćorić defeated 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer 6-4, 6-4 in the semifinals of the Shanghai Rolex Masters on Saturday but wasn’t able to get past Novak Djokovic in the Final; losing 6-3, 6-4. Ćorić is on the rise and could very soon meet fellow Croatian Marin Čilić in the top 10 of world ranked tennis players.
Ćorić has played some incredible tennis in 2018 and looks to finish the year strong as he has catapulted through the ATP rankings. He is currently ranked 19th in the world, but will move to #13 after Shanghai. The Shanghai Masters is an ATP Masters 1000 event, which is regarded as one of the top nine tournaments outside of the Grand Slams.
