Borna Coric's Game Style

Server

Medium

Borna Coric can't be regarded as a Server but he gets more and more free points with this shot. When compared with his rivals he gets on average the same ratio of aces/service winners and giving the fact that he is so good from the back of the court this is excellent.

Puncher

Medium-high

Borna Coric is developing his Punching skills and the forehand is played more and more in an aggressive way. He still Retrieves with the forehand but now he is also capable to take risks much more frequently.

Tempo Player

High

In 2018, Borna Coric has been developing his Tempo game style a lot. He plays closer to the baseline and takes more risks than before. Now besides being more solid with the backhand and the forehand, he starts making more points than his opponents with these two shots. His game is getting close to the one of Novak Djokovic.

Offensive Player

Medium

13% of Borna Coric's total points are won at the net (with or without a volley) and this stands in the average of the ATP players. It means that he knows when he has to come in to take an edge but he still can't be regarded as an Offensive player.

Retriever

High

Borna Coric is a good example of a Retriever. Capable of counterpunching, retrieving and defending with ease, he wins 49% of his points thanks to the errors of his rivals (above the average of the ATP players). When compared with his opponents, he makes less errors than them with the serve, forehand, backhand & volley.
