Interviewed by Sky Sport, the Croatian player Borna Coric spoke about his similarities with Novak Djokovic, one of his friends on the ATP Tour.
'I (have) said many times that I agree (about us) playing similar tennis: but the level of tennis is not even close. He plays much better. I never said I am like him, but being compared to him is very nice and it's a good feeling. But I need to practice much more to come at that level,' Coric clarified.
Djokovic and Coric have faced each other twice, with the Serbian winning both in straight sets: in 2018 at the Monte Carlo Masters and in 2016 at the Madrid Open.
