Winning a Grand Slam is my absolute priority in 2019, says Borna Coric

Borna Coric celebrates

Croatian star Borna Coric has vowed to make a splash at next year’s Grand Slams as he aims to achieve his goal of breaking into the top ten in the world next season. 

Coric has been one of the stand-out young players on the ATP Tour this season, and he is keen to capitalise.

Quizzed on his intentions to become a top ten player, Coric said: “To achieve this I must perform much better in the Grand Slams.

“They will be the absolute priority in 2019.

“I will play the Australian Open in 2019 but before I will sit down with my team to analyse all aspects to improve.”

Coric has had a fine year, winning the title at Halle, finishing runner-up in Shanghai, and reaching the semi-finals at Indian Wells.

“I have improved on practically everything,” he explained.

“It was important for me to gain a couple of kilos of muscle weight.

“That has allowed me to adapt my style of play a little, to be more aggressive, and the experience accumulated in a few seasons has made me a player much more mature, both physically and mentally.”
