Borna Coric says he played best tennis of his life against Roger Federer

Borna Coric experienced firsthand how it felt to compete against Roger Federer, with winning chances. In Indian Wells, in March, the Croatian led by a set-and-a-break, but then something changed.

'It was a great match, I was playing the best tennis of my life,' Coric told Sky Sport. 'I was really enjoying the moment, it was a full stadium, I was living a dream in that set-and-a-half. Then, unfortunately, he played very cleverly, he changed his tactics a little bit.

In the third set I was leading by a break, and missed a very close shot to go up 5-3 but that's tennis and I accept it. He was the better player and that's why he (has been) the no. 1 in the world. In my opinion that day he didn't play very well, but he did found a way to win.' Coric also said he spends free time with friends, drinking wine and eating sweets.

He doesn't play other sports, he likes to rest. ALSO READ: Borna Coric reveals miraculous therapy to recover from injuries
