The mover of the week is Borna Coric. After an impressive start to his career, he was derailed by knee injury that required surgery and saw his ranking drop drastically. Since his return he has been struggling to regain the confidence and the game that he had that impressed so many before his surgery. Yesterday’s victory in Marrakech will certainly go a long way in the recovery process. He was a finalist last year and this year he took it one step farther. He did so showing us why he was such a promising talent when he broke on the scene. He never gave up despite the lead that his opponent had in both the second and third sets. Coric saved five match points to gain his first career singles title on the ATP World Tour and we can expect to see him winning many more if he stays healthy.
