Borna Coric: 'Rafael Nadal's Davis Cup appearance is a question mark'

In an interview with Sport Klub, Borna Coric spoke about the Davis Cup Finals that will take place in Madrid. Croatia will face Spain and Russia. "The only question mark is Rafael Nadal as he has to see how he finishes the ATP Finals," said Coric.

"As for the Russians, they are led by Daniil Medvedev, there are also Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev who are basically top 20 players so it could not be more difficult." On the late part of this year, Coric added: "It was a disaster!

Apart from St. Petersburg, where I reached the final, everything should have been forgotten. I had no confidence in my forehand, my return was very weak and I could not play. The only good thing that I served well throughout the season."

On what his plans are following the Davis Cup, Coric said: "I will start getting prepared straight forward. I took a two-week break and I will have four weeks to prepare as best as possible ahead of the new season. I know I can still improve a lot.

I will work more on my forehand and on my return because those were the weakest aspects this year. I know what I am capable of, I think if I prepare well I will have a good season." Coric split with his Italian coach Riccardo Piatti with whom he had started working at the end of the 2017 season.
