Borna Coric clarifies on controversial quotes about Novak Djokovic

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.
