Professional career

In July, he reached a career-high ranking of world number 20.[14] On July 2, Coric lost the opening round of Wimbledon 2018 to Danill Medvedev.

Playing style and coaching

?ori? is a defensive baseliner. He is solid from both the forehand and backhand wing and moves well laterally on the court. His style of play lends itself to having long rallies and wearing down his opponent from the baseline. Due to the fact that he's born left-handed but plays on his right hand, the strengths in his game are in his movement and his two-handed backhand. In addition, he also possesses a strong and precise serve, which enables him to win a lot of easy points. That in turn, helps to preserve his energy for return games and outlast opponents in long rallies, in order to break their serve.

His past coaches have been ?eljko Krajan (2014-2015), Thomas Johansson (2015), Miles Maclagan (2016), and Ivica An?i? (2016-2017).[] He is currently coached by Kristijan Schneider and Riccardo Piatti.[]
