Coric eyes further improvement after winnng ATP Comeback Player of the Year
The 26-year-old climbed from No 278 to No 26 after recovering from shoulder surgery
Borna Coric began 2022 with hope but fear, confident in his ability but wondering whether his body would allow him to compete at the top level.
Having dropped as low as No 278 in May, a year after undergoing right shoulder surgery, the Croat closes the year as the world No 26, with a brilliant run to the title in Cincinnati in August.
On Wednesday he was named as the winner of the ATP Comeback Player of the Year, an award voted for by his fellow players.
“I’m super happy to win the ATP Comeback Player of the Year award,” Coric said. “Obviously it does mean a lot to me after a very, very hard season, and after my shoulder surgery. So all I can say is thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. It does mean a lot to me and obviously I hope that my next season is going to be even better.”
