He is a very aggressive player who plays relatively well on all surfaces.
After preparing for the US Open where he managed to reach the semi-finals of the only ATP tournament he held, he lost in the first round of the last GS of the season.
Yet this weekend helped Germany to stay in the Davis Cup group.
Borna Coric, a 20-year-old Croatian player, ranks 56th in the world ranking. He is one of the most promising players of the players who are appearing on the circuit.
He arrives at this stage of the season after reaching the 3rd round of the US Open, where he lost against Kevin Anderson, one of the finalists of the tournament.
Also to mention the great victory over Zverev, who was one of the great favorites to win the competition.
In the direct confrontation, Jan-Lennard Struff leads 1-0. This meeting was held this year and in a tournament of preparation for the US Open.
Prognosis Jan-Lennard Struff vs. Borna Coric:
Although Struff won the Coric very recently, I think favoritism is on Coric’s side. Coric, who after a good US Open, took time to rest and get fresh to the final stage of the season,
unlike Struff who helped Germany by staying in the world group.
It was subjected to a huge wear, since he was forced to play all 3 days and where he spent a lot of time on court (2 of the 3 games he did were decided only on the 5th set).
Add to that, it still has the wear and tear of travel. That said, I think Coric will win the meeting.
