By posting the following message on his Facebook account: "Dear fans, it is my great pleasure to inform you that I will be the winner of the ATP Star of Tomorrow presented by Emirates Airlines. Being the youngest player to finish the ATP World Tour season inside the Top 100 makes me the winner", Borna Coric has anticipated the ATP and announced that he is the 25th winner of the prestigious award.
If, on one hand, the award is, of course, no guarantee of a successful career as Pro for Coric, on the other, the ATP has more often than not picked up the right guy as proved by the list of previous winners. The award was assigned for the first time in 1990 and, since then, 6 winners have gone on to win at least one Grand Slam title: Pat Rafter (1993), Albert Costa (1994), Marat Safin (1998), Juan Carlos Ferrero (1999), Andy Roddick (2001) and Rafael Nadal (2003).
4 winners have reached at least one Grand Slam Final: Andrei Medvedev (1992), Mark Philippoussis (1995), Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (2007) and Kei Nishikori (2008). 2 winners have broken into the top-10: Gael Monfils (2005) and Milos Raonic (2011). This means that one winner out of two ends up having a brilliant career.
