Coric Leaps Up The Rankings

WEEK: 05.15.2017

Borna Coric’s impressive run at the Mutua Madrid Open earned him the mover of the week honors.  He defeated the number one ranked player, Andy Murray, before he was stopped in the quarterfinals by Dominic Thiem.  Coric is slowly but surely working his way back up the rankings after knee surgery derailed him last year.  He won his first career title earlier this year and hopes that his continued hard work will result in further increases in his ranking as the season progresses.  He is definitely growing in confidence and that can only bode well for him at the second Major of the season, Roland Garros.
